WINEMAKING COMMENTS

The rocky soil structure of the Optimiste vineyards reduces yields and produces fantastically ripe, intense Cabernet grapes.

 

COLOUR

Rich, deep purple hues.

 

AROMA

Lifted aromas of blackberry and cassis combine with complex spice and cigar box notes.

 

FLAVOUR

The pallet is rich and intense with berry fruit flavours supported by wonderfully ripe fine grained tannins and a slight minerally finish.

 

CELLARING

The tannin and acid structure of this wine will reward careful cellaring over the next 5 to 8 years.

 

FOOD

This wine is for cheese lovers. Mature cheddars from Tasmania or New Zealand are a perfect match.
