TASTING NOTES
Rosalind, meaning beautiful rose, is a Bordeaux blend with elegance and balance that can matured for 10 – 20 years. The objective is to create a wine with elegance and balance that can stand the test of time. In the 2015 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon was the major partner at 50%, with Cabernet franc 40% and Merlot at 10% the balance of the blend. The wine has an intense dark colour, the palate shows a good tight grip of oak tannins, balanced with excellent fruit and good length. The Cabernet Franc and Merlot lend wonderful elegance to the blend. It should evolve well over time, and has the structure and concentration to age for 10 to 20 years.
