Konpira Maru Icarus Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot


From the winery – “Konpira Maru started, as many great ideas do, as an idea born from two mates having a beer at the pub. Working in the retail, production and education sectors of the wine industry for many years, we were searching for our own creative outlet. Sharing similar viticultural, winemaking and beer-drinking values, we set out on our vinous journey and from these humble beginnings, produced the first vintage in 2014, which resulted in just 600 bottles. We set out to make interesting wines with minimal intervention and maximum care. Wines that were full of character, with a focus on affordability and a high-drinkability factor.”

This is how Sam and Alastair describe the Icarus – “This wine is so bloody yum; it’s silky yet edgy, like that hot hot scene from The Bodyguard when Whitney Houston’s (RIP) silk scarf is cut in half by Kevin Costner’s sword. And just like Whitney (RIP) sung in that piece of cinematic genius, we will always love this wine. We have a special bond with it, a simpatico, a goddamn wine crush bordering on the creepy. Everything about it. Its aromatics, its taste, the way it looks at me like I just roasted the perfect potato.”
