2018 Tristan

$42.00

This blend of three classic varieties, grown on the Ynys Witrin vineyard, is vibrant red in colour with purple hues. It displays elegant varietal fruit, with underlying leafy briar & berry aromas, and nuances of mocha, tobacco leaf and fine integrated French oak. The palate is long and supple, enhanced by the blackcurrant & cherry characteristics of Shiraz and the complementary softness of Merlot, and completed by a fine soft tannin finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon (52%) Shiraz (28%) and Merlot (20%)
