“Our fresh take on a contemporary Cabernet. The Modern celebrates what our organically-farmed soils produce best. This medium-bodied, red-and-dark-fruited style is what we like to call a ‘serious drink now wine,’ whilst we predict it will age just as well.”
STEVE JAMES, HEAD OF VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING

Ratings
0/ 'I do like its structure and poise, which reflect the way the wine has been assembled. Leafy tobacco and black olive nuances, overlay the deeper plummy, blackcurrant of the two varieties. Impressive and expressive.' / Ray Jordan
Vineyard Notes
Excellent budburst was followed by a beautiful warm November; ideal conditions for flowering & fruit set. Summer was quite mild, with one of our wettest Decembers and just a few hot days. The warmer March weather saw reds ripen beautifully & they were harvested under clear, sunny skies with ripe, concentrated flavours & excellent fine-grained powdery tannins.
