COLOUR  Garnet red with raspberry red hue.

NOSE  Intense blueberry, cassis & mulberry aromatics with dried herbal notes &  spiced oak.

PALATE  Laden with dark berries, choc mint & savoury spice. Structural French oak  tannins carry this wine through to a long finish.

WINEMAKING   Fruit was harvested when flavour, tannin & acid were all in balance. Fruit was fermented to retain fruit freshness & juicy flavours. Natural tannins are supported by French oak influence & fresh acidity, coming together to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon for short term cellaring or immediate drinkability.

VINTAGE NOTES  2020 was a warm and dry vintage, however a wetter than average Winter set us up well for this. The growing season started off with a warm Spring followed by a hot Summer. We did have one significant rain event late February which slowed down the reds & allowed for ripening of tannin and flavour to catch up with sugars. The warm & dry conditions reduced disease pressure, this also resulted in ample marri blossom around the district which eased the bird          pressure experienced in 2019. Yields were low across the board, but on the upside this resulted in excellent quality with concentration of flavour across all varieties.
