VINEYARD

SOURCED FROM A SINGLE VINEYARD WHICH LAYS ON TOP OF ANCIENT RED VOLCANIC SOILS JUST ABOVE THE BEAUTIFUL MURRUMBIDGEE RIVER.

WINEMAKING

THE FRUIT WAS HAND PICKED, DE-STEMMED AND FERMENTED ON SKINS FOR 18 DAYS PRIOR TO PRESSING. THE FERMENT WAS HAND PLUNGED THREE TIMES A DAY AND PRESSED ONCE DRY. THE WINE WAS MATURED IN A NEW FRENCH OAK PUNCHEON FOR 14 MONTHS PRIOR TO RACKING AND BOTTLING.

TASTING NOTES

BRIGHT, JUICY RED FRUITS AND CASSIS DOMINATE THE AROMAS WITH A HINT OF CLOVE AND AUTUMNAL LEAF, WHICH   IS SO TYPICAL OF CABERNET GROWN IN COOLER REGIONS. THE PALATE IS BRIGHT, WITH BEAUTIFULLY SILKY, BUT PRESENT, TANNINS WHICH WILL ALLOW THE WINE TO MATURE WONDERFULLY OVER A LONG PERIOD.

VINTAGE

2017 WAS A SUPERB VINTAGE CHARACTERISED BYHEALTHY SPRING RAINFALL AND PERFECT EVEN RIPENING CONDITIONS THROUGH TO AUTUMN.
