Tasting Note:

John Kolasa and his team at have been making stunningly pure, refined wines from the limestone and clay vineyards on the plateau above Belair and Ausone. This has a gorgeous bouquet of small red berries infused with floral notes and earthy minerals. The attack is understated, but pure with well delineated flavours and some lovely savoury, spicy notes. This is very refined with classy, pure fruit tannins. 72% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, cropped at 36hl/ha.
