AltaCima tasting - London International Wine & Spirit Fair
19 May, 2005
"The nose is full of greengage, sweet yet fresh. There is complexity and layered fruit giving depth of flavour. The palate feels sweet and ripe but the zippy freshness lifts the flavours and gives good length."
Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
(Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Shiraz/Petit Verdot)
"Real depth of flavours with different fruits showing on the nose. The cassis dominates but there is plum and a touch of spice. On the palate the tannins are ripe so the wine has a suppleness and charm. Flavours are many with different sensations at each taste, peppery cassis, red and black plum. Nice structure firm but not aggressive. Power on the finish."
