The palace is long and elegant with hints of vanilla with fine, polished tannins.

Mont Rochelle Merlot 2009- This wine shows red fruits of plums, and mulberries. The palate is full and well-rounded and portrays nuances of tobacco and dark chocolate. A full bodied food wine that will benefit from being enjoyed with most red meats including balsamic braised lamb shanks served with creamy mash and caramelised seasonal vegetables

Mont Rochelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2015- Ruby red with youthful purple hues this wine displays an array of Cassis, eucalyptus and classic cigar box characters that are neatly integrated with layers of black fruits.
