Full and round with aromas and flavours of flowers (carnations and violets) and fruit (raspberries, black berries, sour cherries and plums) with chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather, licorice and spice. The long, velvety finish balances the acidity. Best serving temperature 16-19C
The pièce de résistance from a celebrated season, the 2015 Strewn Three is a specially crafted Bordeaux-styled assemblage of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc and 22% Merlot harvested from the premium Home Farm vineyard. The varietals were aged separately in oak for a period of 21 months, prior to the blending of 18 specially selected barriques, from both new (78%) and seasoned (22%) barrels, from French, Canadian and American cooperages. A wonderful example of an assemblage which not only displays the strengths of the individual Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, but the greater tasting experience that comes with a well-integrated marriage of the varietals.
