Inspired by the brightest star in the constellation Crux. A “giant red” called Gamma Crucis, which has guided many an explorer around the Cape of Storms. A full bodied wine with succulent flavours and ripe chewy tannins. Raspberries, mint appeal and sweet plum fruits give a good balance of the wine and wood characters.
