Idiom ‘B’ – Bordicon Blend 2016

R495.00

In Stock

A full and complex Bordeaux-style blend. A multi-clone blend of five noble varietals. Explosive and evolving aromas of ripe blackberries, leather and pencil crayon shavings are followed by hints of cedarwood, tobacco and trademark cassis character. A serious, tightly packed wine with a long lingering finish. A wine of great pedigree that will reward cellaring. Decanting recommended.

Cabernet sauvignon (55%), Merlot (20%), Cabernet franc (10%), Malbec (10%), Petit Verdot (5%)
