This 2016 release is right on form, with the warmer than average temperatures delivering excellent conditions to fully ripen these later-maturing varieties. Notably, it’s also the 30th year of Célèbre from our almost four decades on the land. The original Cabernet-Merlot dominant blend has evolved to predominantly Merlot-Syrah with touches of Cabernet Sauvignon, Franc and Malbec contributing both complexity and structure.
The nose is bright and intense with sweet red fruit and hints of cassis.
Aromatics are tempered with notes of fennel and coriander seed, the palate unfolding with flavours of ripe red fruits and fresh blackcurrant. There is great concentration at the core and a suppleness thanks to the fine, ripe tannins.
We recommend time in bottle to see this wine at its peak.
A very pretty wine with lifted aromas of nettles passionfruit, tropical fruit and citrus flower notes. Mingling with subtle flinty mineral characters, and flavours of gooseberry and melon, this wine express the Gladstone terroir. It is a crisp refreshing wine which evolves into a generous fruit-filled mouthful balanced with elegant citrus-like acidity.
