About: In 2012, we developed a viticulture response to address our Cabernet Sauvignon’s specific needs. Prior to that, when we benchmarked them in wine shows, the best result we had received was a Silver. Since 2012, we’ve won 8 Trophies and 27 Gold medals. If the judges are anything to go by, our Cabernet’s are now as good if not better than our Shiraz!
Viticulture: Shoot thinned, leaf thinned and crop reduced to 1 tonne per acre. Hand picked grapes were selected from our best 2 parcels of estate grown fruit.
Wine making: 16 day cool fermentation on skins, barrel aged in the finest new and used French barriques for 14 months. Multiple rackings to clarify, aerate (enhancing the sensory properties of the wine) and to help form pigmented tannins which improve mouthfeel and stabalize colour.
Tasting Notes: A lovely bouquet of bold black fruits; currants and cherries, lifted floral violet notes and hints of licorice. The palate is powerful yet seamless with liquid cassis floating on top of layers of red & black fruits, spice, graphite and fine oaky notes. The supple tannins & acid line give structure and longevity to the wine.
