'29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 13% Petit Verdot and 10% Malbec. Matured for 19 months, 10% new. Wonderfully complex aromatics including red and black berries, tea leaf, earth, pencil shavings and oak spice. Excellent fruit concentration to go with lovely freshness and tannins that are fine yet still grippy. Well balanced and set to mature with further benefit.' – Winemag 10-Year-Old Wine Report 2021, Top 10 (93/100)

'Fresh 2011 has lovely leafy fragrance from cab franc component - there’s more cab, plus merlot, petit verdot & malbec. Some robust power, yet elegant; charming yet restrained; pure fruit, but savoury too. Only a smidgen new oak. Approachable, yet years to develop; same was true of 2010 (5 stars).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5*

Producer information After 15 years at the helm of producing award-winning wines at Cordoba, Christopher Keet began to entertain the thought of producing his own wines. He spent three months travelling in South America with his wife Léanne and children Robyn and Grant in 2008 and it was during this memorable adventure that he finally decided to follow his dream of producing his own wine.
