Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested predominantly from a block of hanging cane vines grown to the estate E Block and a small parcel at Upper Ngumby Vineyard. Grapes are destemmed and crushed into static fermenters for inoculation and vinification. Upon completion of ferments, a component is pressed and returned, the batches are treated to an extended maceration of three weeks on skins and tasted daily to determine optimal extraction of fine tannins. Parcels are filled to a combination of maturation vessels and 300L oak barrels for thirteen months.
Deep crimson red. Mulberries, blackberry and black currant bouquets. Savoury spices, freshly roasted coffee and dark chocolate make for a complex wine. A palate of ripe berries and currant, long, fine grained tannins adding structure and finesse. A medium weighted and firmly structured wine, striking the balance between strength, palate weight and cool climate elegance.
