Award Winning Wine

  • 3 Star Ribbon – The Real Review
  • 94 Points Halliday

A classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the Haan Estate vineyards in the heart of the Barossa Valley.

The individual wines are fermented and matured separately, then carefully blended in proportions that reflect the seasonal conditions of the vintage.

The Merlot brings velvety softness, ripe plum and raspberry flavours, while the Cabernet Franc is used to bring a floral, violet lift to the wine.
