WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES: Even a passing glance of the wine in the glass reveals a concentrated and deep colour, while the nose presents Cabernet typicity at peak ripeness underpinned by blue and black fruits from the other varietals. Beneath the ripe fruit are hints of oud, graphite, and lavender. A first taste offers Cabernet intensity before a defined and persistent tannin profile, reminiscent of a top Barolo, coats the palate. As the wine carries through to a long finish, there is a plethora of succulent fruit notes and refined oak characters to tease out of this tightly focused Magna Praemia. The remarkable 2020 vintage is on full display and the great rewards this wine has to offer will surely be realised with an extra 2-5 years in the cellar.

ENJOY FROM: 5-20+ years from vintage
