Reilly's source fruit from older sites around the prime viticultural precinct of Leasingham, for the construct of oustanding wines of great character and charm. Dry Lands is vinified from parcels of choice Cabernet grapes grown to the elite and unirrigated Leasingham Smyth Block. The superlative vines are forty five years of age, closely cropped to yield a scant 2.0T/acre, whereupon the grapes are hand picked to the most optimal levels of natural fruit sugars. Parcels are crushed and vinified in traditional open vats, prolonging the contact of juices on skins for maximum extraction. Ferments are then basket pressed and treated to an extravagant two years maturation in a selection of the finest French oak hogsheads.
Deep red colour. Savoury and earthy upfront followed by darker fruit and a dusting of spice, distinct regional mint and eucalyptus with hints of blackcurrant and chocolate. The primary fragrances evolve into currant and lots of biscuity oak. A rich, full bodied Cabernet with layers of intense dark berry fruits, well integrated oak, fine tannins and lingering mint chocolate finish. Serve alongside beef filled with oysters and spinach.
