Still unfolding, the 2015 vintage (5*) is a blend of Merlot and Petit Verdot, with minor portions of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, estate-grown at Matakana and matured in French oak barriques (mostly new). Full-coloured, with good personality, it is mouthfilling, savoury and complex, with obvious cellaring potential. Plummy and spicy, with a slightly earthy streak, it is strongly flavoured, ripe and finely textured, with a long finish.
