Sommelier's Notes

TASTING NOTES


‘The Three Graces’ is a classic Bordeaux style blend of the worlds three most noble varieties. A classic lifted nose of blackcurrant cassis and cedar wood with hints of black olive, pepper, violets and tobacco.


The palate is an integrated blend of flavours, svelte and seamless showing prominent blackcurrant fruit delicately interwoven with tobacco leaf, capsicum, black pepper and savoury French oak giving the wine an undeniable elegance and generous length.

Review by: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit


This is immediately appealing on the nose showing cassis, Black Doris plum, cherry tart and mixed spice aromas, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that is fleshy and delicious. Up front and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2027.
