“Contrarian flies in the face of our own conventions. Emboldened by Cabernet Sauvignon, Contrarian possesses Blackbird’s signature aromatic richness alongside bold tannins that draw a striking contrast to the rest of the flock”. Uniquely, therefore, from Blackbird, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend. Complex and expressive with aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and truffle, Contrarian is ripe to impress with its notable density, tight tannins and illustrious texture: rich, concentrated, and intense. With a long finish of black liquorice, blackberries, plum and toffee, this evolves temendously on the palate. Captivating now and will contine to develop in the cellar for another 15 years.
