Classic Clare can be proud of a long history, producing many of Clare Valley's most memorable vintages. Cabernet Sauvignon is selectively sourced off the finest blocks of vine in Valley Clare. Grapes are picked at intense levels of baume and treated to a cold soak for optimal extraction of colour, flavours and tannin. A small batch open top fermentation on skins for several days is followed by transfer to oak for completion of malolactic. Components are lavished by an extended maturation in a selection of high proportion extravagant new oak barrels, before assembling into the finished wine and treating to a further term of bottle age under the historic Leasingham cellars.

Concentrated, sweet currant and blackberry flavours abound, hints of black olive and ground spice add complexity. An opulence of fruit as the concentration of flavours persisits on the firm but compliant palate, suppported by well integrated oak and luscious, ripe tannins. The Cabernet of choice to accompany game with rich wine sauces.
