  • Series C takes its name from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, which defines the style of this wine. This is a firm, powerful, and concentrated wine that is rich in fruit at release and blended for long ageing. This blend displays a dense red-black colour and a magenta-tinged rim. The deep and subtle perfume of violets, cool graphite and layers of dark berry fruit has a captivating complexity. Creme de cassis, black liquorice and fresh juniper berries add to the alluring bouquet.

Twenty-two months in seventy-four per cent new French oak barque, with the balance in older French oak. Series C 2019 consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (fifty-six per cent), equal parts Merlot and Malbec (twenty per cent each), and Cabernet Franc (four per cent). Forty-six barrels were produced.

Series C 2019 displays an intense ruby-purple colour and a vibrant crimson rim. Dense on opening, this blend offers seductively fragrant layers of blackberry, cassis, and baked plum, perfectly offset by a savoury, hoisin sauce note. Opulent floral notes, violet, and lilac harmoniously blend with fresh-crushed juniper berries, pencil shavings, nuanced dark chocolate, and sweet, warm nutmeg. The palate reveals a plush, expansive entry with vivid continuity. Fine-grained tannins throughout embody a cashmere embrace, building on the fine and assertive structure. Sumptuous black berry fruits are expressive and well-defined, underpinned by a mouth-watering core with an effortlessly long finish. While alluring in its youth, the 2019 Series C promises a decade or more of cellaring to realize its full potential.
