As we have come to expect, Cornish Point has a slightly reserved nose as a young wine, with hints of dark fruit, raspberry, roses and crushed herbs. The palate is dense, a core of dark raspberry, then dark petals (rose and violets), and a pleasant waft of char. Serious texture and harmony, opulent yet refined. This is a brooding and powerful rendition from an outstanding vintage.
This wine comes from a single vineyard, the Cornish Point vineyard, which is located at the eastern end of Bannockburn just 6 KM from the winery. The site was chosen for its unique location and exceptional combination of slope, climate and interesting soil qualities. Meticulous farming without the use of chemicals and observing the natural rhythms of the ecosystem, which is combined with their hands off approach during winemaking.
