Tasting Note:

Pagodes has become one of our favourite second wines. The estate takes real pride in their Pagodes and year after year we find a really classic, beautifully constructed second wine. 2009 is no exception; Pagodes offers aromas of cigar smoke, tobacco, cedar wood and ripe cassis. The palate is packed with layers of sweet cool berry fruit. There is a wonderful mineral edge to this, which complements the vibrant fruit core. One is left with great freshness and persistence of flavours. Delicious. Interestingly this has the same alcohol has the Grand Vin, 14.5%, but no-one seems to be criticising the Pagodes; 69% Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot.
