VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

This wine is a blend of 91% cabernet sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and 3% Malbec. The fruit was harvested in April 2017 from the Mount Barker (70%) and Frankland River (30%) regions. It was cold soaked in a small fermenter for nine days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration allowing for the softening of the tannins. Thirty percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one year old (30%) and two year old (40%) Bordeaux barriques for fourteen maturation before blending the wines. It was then bottle aged for a further six months.

THE WINE

This wine displays bright and lifted aromas of dark berry and bay leaf, and gentle oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth filling with juicy red fruit flavours balanced with acidity and gentle fine grained tannins which lead to a long savoury finish. It is well suited to red meat dishes such as a roast leg of lamb with garlic and herbs. It will continue to develop in the bottle for eight to ten years.
