VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

The continental cool climate sub-region of Frankland River sits within the north west corner of the Great Southern wine region (its latitude 34°39’S). The Riversdale vineyard, planted in 1997 on deep gravel over clay soils, on a north-south orientation, is located 7kms north west of the Frankland River township.

This wine is 100% cabernet sauvignon, the fruit picked and sorted in early April 2014. It was cold soaked in a small fermenter for twelve days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration. Forty percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one year old (30%) and two year old (30%) Bordeaux barriques for sixteen months.

THE WINE

This wine displays complex aromas of black currant, plum and cassis, with savoury hints and gentle oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth filling with a juicy dark fruit flavours balanced with acidity and gentle fine grained tannins which lead to a long 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 up to 15 years.
