Dip your nose into a glass of this Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah blend grown in volcanic soils, and you will notice how much more expressive aromatics you smell than wines produced with the same variety grown in different soils. Not only do the ancient volcanic deposits produce more perfumed wines, but they also provide better drainage for the vines, resulting in a complex and unique wine. Plants grown in volcanic terroirs are just happier! The intense eruption of flavours will have your taste buds doing the happy dance! Fragrant and appealing aromas of blackberries, ripe plums and grilled meats, layered with hints of savoury herbs, eucalyptus and spice. Ripe dark fruit flavours and smoky undertones are shaped by vibrant, fresh acidity. A touch of minty herbs and cedar lingers in the finish. This wine delivers exceptional value and tastes like something around the $20+ mark. Dare I say this is the best-value red on the shelves today? Stock up!
