The Oddbins Take

A Troika, the people at Cape Chamonix informed us, is a Russian sleigh pulled by three horses. But their love of wine hasn’t been randomly superseded by an interest in Russian transport methods, panic not. Rather, they are likening the Troika sleigh to the Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in this here wine, with its stallion-esque form and equine-like sensitivity and the harmonious efforts of three horses pulling a sleigh. Don’t miss the ride. Whether we could argue it shares vanilla, sweet ripe cherries, blackberries and cinnamon flavours with said horses is debatable.
