We are thrilled to announce that our iconic 2017 Signature received a gold medal in the 2023 Decanter World Wine Awards – obtaining 95 Points!
“Dense inky black fruit aromas, with savoury notes of leather and forest floor, chocolatey undertones and hints of smoke. Pure on the palate, well-integrated.” – 2023 Decanter World Wine Awards
This Bordeaux-style blend is comprised of all the classic varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
Although ready to drink now, it can easily age for a decade or more, making it the perfect collector’s item.
