There is something very special about the wines of Forest Hill. Part of this, of course, comes from the location. The vineyard is located in Mount Barker and the vines date back to original plantings made in 1965. This makes Forest Hill the oldest cool climate winery in Western Australia. Warm daylight hours coupled with the cool nights of the Great Southern harness ideal conditions for the production of slowly ripened wine styles. Harvests of Cabernet Sauvignon, picked of the superior Block 5, are destemmed and crushed into eight tonnes, open fermenters, inoculated and pumped over thrice daily at 25°C. Batches are transferred to oak barrel for completion of malolactic and eighteen months maturation.
A deep scarlet colour. Expressions of dark berries, tobacco leaf and subtle earthy notes carry through from the bouquet onto the palate with lingering dark chocolate characters. A long and generous mouthfeel is well supported by a very dense structure of chalky tannins. Approachable now, Block 5 will continue to soften and integrate as it develops into a longer and more complex, mouthfilling wine.
