The Ashmead block has consistently produced small parcels of peerless quality fruit. Traditionally this elite parcel has been blended into the estate range, but in 1998 Lorraine Ashmead was inspired by its excellence to release it under the family name. An unknown clone of Cabernet Sauvignon but most likely G9V3, planted by Samuel Tolley in 1944, is grown to deep alluvial silts over red brown limestone soils. Yields at this precious vineyard are a meagre one to two tonnes per hectare. Grapes are hand picked and teated to a chilled vinification in open top concrete fermenters, before transfer to exclusively new French oak puncheons and hogsheads for completion, malolactic and twenty two months maturation.
Deep purple/ black colour. Sweetly perfumed aromas of blackberries and candied plum, vanilla and oaken spice. Concentrated and lush palate showing dense dark berry fruits and suave baking spice notes, seasoned by savouryness and herb. Ashmead boasts excellent precision, harmony and depth, incredible persistence as the wine lingers on an immeasurably long finish.
