Cabernet Sauvignon Goulburn Victoria
A boutique, hands on winemaking enterprise of extremely limited production. Sedona take aim each vintage to construct a bold varietal style of Cabernet Sauvignon, showing vibrant characters of blackberry and cassis, with a power and weight of fruit that has become a Victorian benchmark. The superb efforts of Sedona can be found on some of the most exclusive wine lists in the country.
From its humble beginnings, Sedona's vision has been to produce fine cool climate wines that are regionally distinctive and unique in style. This began in 1997 when Sonja and Paul Evans saw their land for the first time. Armed with a shovel, sheer dedication and limited resources, Sonja and Paul embarked on an ambitious plan to transform a fifty year old cattle property into a fully operational viticultural enterprise, which now encompasses a 2000 case annual wine production. Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested from well pruned vines yielding a scant 1½ tonnes per acre. The grapes are crushed and inoculated to select yeasts before vinification and maturation in a selection of tight grained oak barriques. Approx 13.5%
