|The wine is named for Dame Nellie Melba, a legendary opera singer of the late-19th/early 20th century. Melba Toast and Peach Melba are both named for her; Lucia was one of her most famous roles. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon backed by Sangiovese. Deep ruby colour with aromas of cassis, black cherry, leather, anise and vanilla. Dry with tons of fruit, fine acidity and fabulous tannic grip suggesting excellent cellar potential (2-5+ years). It can also be enjoyed tonight, decanted. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.|
