Twelve

53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, 21% Merlot and 1% Carmenère

Dominated by aromas of black fruits with a slight hint of black olives and liquorice. The palate is further substantiated with a concentrated yet broad profile of Italian plums and black cherries. The gentle supple tannins come together in an elegant structure and envelope the soft round finish.

Additional Tasting Notes

This is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, 21% Merlot and 1% Carmenère. The wine was aged 18 months in oak (90% French, of which 45% was new). Dark in colour, the wine begins with dramatic aromas that jump from the glass – plum, black cherry, chocolate and spice. This is echoed on the palate, which delivers a delicious array of sweet red and dark berry flavours. The ripe tannins give the wine a generous and satisfying finish. 91 points.
