COLOUR  Garnet red.

NOSE  Enticing aromas of plum, mulberry, dried herbs and sweet French oak.

PALATE  A rich & round palate full of dark fruit, licorice, spice and a generous lick of oak. The palate is framed by a fine tannin structure which is complemented by generous fruit and natural acidity. The wine has a long finsh with complex flavours dancing across the palate long after the wine is gone.

WINEMAKING  Fruit was harvested when flavour, tannin and acid were all in balance. It was fermented using select yeast in static fermenters where it was pumped over daily to manage the fermentation & tannin extraction. It was then pressed off into tank, settled then transferred to French oak barrels for maturation. Careful barrel selection brought rich fruit, firm tannins and a tight acidity together beautifully, producing a Cabernet of great structural integrity and one that will reward careful cellaring.

VINTAGE NOTES  2019 was a long, cool vintage. It started off with a cooler than average Spring and Summer and this followed through vintage. Canopy management and   attention to detail were key to getting fruit ripe and avoiding disease. Yields were low across the board. The results have been punchy aromatic whites, fine natural acidity, spicy Shiraz and more elegant Cabernets.
