Tasting notes

The 2013 Extra Brut leads with complex aromas of apricot preserve, brioche, candied ginger and glazed pear underpinned with toffee, vanilla custard and shortbread. On the palate, a lengthy acidity is layered with clementine and golden delicious apple, which is balanced by the rich complexity of lemon curd, peach cobbler, toasted almond and baked pineapple. This wonderful interplay leads to a refreshing crisp and clean finish."

"The 2018 J. Davies Estate jd Cabernet opens with aromas of blackberry, currants, milk chocolate, and sour cherry, accentuated by fresh coffee, dense and dark dried plum, and red licorice. The palates lush entry of strawberry pie precedes a lightly floral mid-palate. Well-structured tannins are infused with a hint of dark chocolate, cocoa and vanilla, culminating with a bright and lively finish.
