The Flagship Cabernet Franc 2010
Well concentrated with a deep ruby red colour. A combination of luscious florals, plum, and blackberry with expressive notes of cassis, spice and fresh herbs. The palate is rich and smooth with subtle undertones of sweet spice and a hint of dark chocolate.

Credo Limited Release Verdelho 2015
This is an exceptional wine revealing peach and apricot aromas with flinty, floral and nutty nuances. Its zesty nature makes this a complex wine showing raw almond and dried fruit on the palate. Its well integrated acid line contributes to the refreshing, lingering finish.
