Vibrant ruby red. This wine displays aromas of dark plums, blackcurrant in combination with subtle mint, sweet sage and milk chocolate. Good fruit intensity of blackcurrant Cabernet character with hints of sweet mint, combined with the juicy dark plum character from the Merlot, with balanced acidity and attractive tannin structure, giving palate length and will allow graceful aging. Best paired with Medium rare Scotch Fillet, on a bed of mash with spring fresh asparagus spears.

Their winemakers are Oenologist Rory Clifton-Parks and, a well-known industry veteran Franklin Tate. The Parks & Tate team bring extensive depth, knowledge and passion to Miles from nowhere.
