This complex yet elegant wine has a vibrant dark red colour with hints of a light plum skin; the nose exhibits dark fruits and some Christmas cake characters. It is smooth and supple on the palate with ripe, medium-full tannins; the wonderfully concentrated flavours exhibit ripe, plumy black fruits, some clove, cinnamon and notes of roasted coffee bean and mint. It has a lingering persistent medium finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Grand Classique is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 13% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 8% Cabernet Franc that sees 18 months in 40% new French oak, the rest used. The nose is minty fresh with fairly predictable black cherry fruit. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry with soft tannin, clean black cherry and cassis fruit with a simple, punter-friendly finish.
