Benjamin is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.

The colour is a deep crimson.  The nose shows exotic aromas of star anise combined with toasty French oak and red berry fruits.

The palate is very fine and balanced, revealing an array of brooding primary fruit characters leading to a tense mineral finish. After opening up over the course of one hour, the wine softens to reveal more ripe mulberry and blackcurrant flavours.

This wine shows incredible tension and finesse of tannin. 

Sumptuous and complex, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon will be best enjoyed from 2025 to 2042.
