Tasting Notes: Simonsig flagship Bordeaux blend. This wine has a deep garnet centre with bright and youthful hues in the rim. the rich perfumed bramble and red berry bouquet is enhanced by layers of mocha, sweet cinnamon sugar and vanilla spiciness. With more aeration the wine shows violet and delicious mulberry fruit. The high Cabernet Sauvignon content adds a lovely lead pencil influence while the fine grained tannins are beautifully balanced. Remarkably accessible at this early stage it will continue to open and integrate over the next 6 years or so.
