About: The reserve label has a very high percentage of premium Moppity fruit and receives the same detailed attention to winemaking.
Viticulture: A high majority of our fruit for the Reserve wines come from our premium ‘Block 2’. Shoot-thinned, leaf-thinned and crop reduced to 2.5 tonnes per acre.
Wine making: Cold soaked pre-ferment, 12 day fermentation, barrel aged in new and used French hogsheads and barriques for 12 months. Multiple rackings are done to clarify and aerate (enhancing the sensory properties of the wine).
Tasting Notes: On the nose there is an array of forest fruits with cedarycomplexity. This is classic cool climate Cabernet with intense blackcurrant, blackberry and spice flavours. Beautifully integrated with subtle cedar oak, generous ripe fruits and is beautifully textured.
