Soil Grape & Sun : a 100% single grape

PURPLE = 100% SYRAH

Deep-hued with ruby reflections. Distinctive nose driven by crushed blackcurrant, blackberry jam, peony and pepper. The palate shows youthfulness with a very crunchy, juicy fruit core and supple, energetic mouthfeel. A very familiar, friendly Syrah.

YELLOW = 100% CABERNET-SAUVIGNON

Concentrated, dark colour tinged with dark purple. Very floral, heady nose of peony and iris with red and black berry notes. Concentrated with sensual, sappy fruit. This is a satisfying Cabernet offering seductive freshness, juiciness and a mineral edge on the finish.

ORANGE = 100% MERLOT

Deep colour displaying mature garnet. Delicate nose driven by blackberry, wild strawberry and violet. Very supple, crisp palate with incredibly energetic, lively fruit and lingering juiciness. An indulgent Merlot for sharing over a barbecue.
