100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of red earth with a compote of berries and fine nuances of dried bay leaf. The oak is gentle with soft tannins and spice notes with a long complex finish. A wet spring gave way to mild and dry conditions throughout the summer with a long slow ripening period. White wines have strong flavours supported by lively acidities and red varietals have fine tannins and deep colours. This vintage could go down as one of the best in the last 25 years for the region. The fruit was hand harvested and transported to the winery where it was cooled overnight and hand sorted. Maceration lasted for 6 weeks with minimal pump overs and temperatures ranging from 12°-27°C. The wine was pressed to tank and allowed to settle for 7 days prior to oak maturation. A range of coopers were used in the wine's development. ABV 14.7%
