The moment of truth……the first taste…success!!

The patron has had his first taste!! The 2010 Paradise Rescued Cabernet Franc has been sampled from the barriques. Wow, wow, wow. The colour is stunning with a young fresh deep pale ruby red that one gets from a well made and beautifully macerated Cab Franc. As you swirl the gorgeous wine and lift the glass, the first thing one immediately notices is the amazing cassis nose – this is a really beautifully fruity wine. In the mouth, the taste is full and long, very forward, lightly tannic and starting to develop depth and complexity in the one year old oak – even after such a short period of time.

This is an emotional moment… the first ever Paradise Rescued wine. And to have created such a success is very very pleasing. Congratulations to Pascale and Albane Bervas – brilliant and thank you. And of course the support from the rest of the team. For our first ever vintage, with a small patch of vines in its first year transitioning to fully organic viticulture, this is a superb achievement.

Our main strategy for Paradise Rescued revolves around three pillars:- Good Fruit, Expert Vinification and Market Access. One of our values is Quality and Excellence. It is clear that we have met our expectations with parts 1 and 2 of this strategy and we are living our values. Now Marketing team, we have to achieve the same quality results with our marketing work!

A day never to be forgotten…….
