Deep crimson red in colour, the bouquet of the Stonehaven Coast Cabernet Sauvignon displays ripe blackberry, cassis and minty spice. Sweet, ripe blackberry and cassis fruit are evident on the palate, and is given added complexity from a background of spicy oak. Rich and complex, this wine has a fine tannin structure and will improve with careful cellaring for up to 7 years.

Winemaker's Notes - After crushing, this wine was fermented and then underwent malolactic fermentation before going to new, 1 and 2 year old American oak barriques.
