Winemaker's Tasting NotesThe highly regarded flagship wine from Gralyn Estate; rich, full-bodied and elegant. Dense, dark crimson in colour, perfumed with blackcurrant, violets, cedar and spice. The palate is well balanced, intense and powerful, with a core of sweet fruit and finely textured tannins supporting a long persistent finish. This wine has been judged as one of the top five Cabernet Sauvignons in Australia and New Zealand. It is an outstanding wine that will reward careful cellaring.
Deep crimson; a polished blend of red and black fruits, with cedar, black olive and a generous seasoning of fine French oak; the full bodied palate is tightly wound and densely packed with fine-grained tannins, concluding a long and sophisticated finish. 94/100 Cellar to 2025
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014
Boy this is one of the very best cabernets from Gralyn... and there have been some very good ones. The fruit displays gorgeous red berry and violet aromas creating a sensational perfume to the senses. The palate is pure and seamlessly constructed with a fine silky mouth feel. 97/100

Rich creaminess. Liquorice on the nose and the palate. Meaty. Perfect ripeness.
