A blend of classic Margaret River cabernet sauvignon and the classic Portuguese variety touriga. Cabernet sauvignon is well-known in Margaret River, whereas is touriga less so. Touriga is one of the main varieties in the Portuguese vintage ports. It has wonderful spicy red and black fruit flavours, with a medium to full-bodied palate and puts an interesting twist on cabernet sauvignon.
Aroma: red and dark berries, mulberry, spice, mocha, hints of violet. An interesting mix of familiar fruit aromas from the Cabernet Sauvignon, and some beguiling, engaging notes from the Touriga – a wonderful blend of the familiar, and the inviting.
Palate: A medium to full boded wine full of red and exotic fruits with a spicy twist. There is a wonderful open feel to the palate, but no shortage of fruit. The tannins are chalky and brick dust like, and combine with a minerally acid to give a classic savoury finish.
