Cabernet Sauvignon is hand picked early at around 13° baume off the Chinese block at Lopresti Vineyard and placed onto 10kg racks. Bunches are left to dry for several weeks in the tradtional Amarone manner, the grapes lose a third of their weight in moisture, an old world technique which achieves fruit of extraordinary intensity and flavour. Fruit is then vinified on skins for a fortnight followed by three weeks maceration, softening the palate, as small, aggressive tannins are mellowed, leaving only larger, silky tannins. Components are matured ten months in a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques before being considered for inclusion into the final assemblage.
Deep ruby red colour. Intense varietal perfumes of blackcurrant, tobacco leaf and dried herb over subtle whiffs of smoky, spicy oak. An intriguing palate of concentrated dark berry fruits framed by silky yet mouth coating tannin. The flavours are complex and well layered with blackberry, cigar box and balanced acidity in support toward the long, dry finish. A match with casseroled rabbit, sage leaf and mash.
