The Mackenzie with its backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon, is our flagship red blend. The Mackenzie recognizes the current family in a 400 year lineage of owners.

This limited volume wine represents a single vineyard block where Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes grow side by side in deep red Tukulu soil.

Each cultivar underwent malo separately in 100% new French oak.
