The best of both worlds, a Cabernet that retains vibrant aromatic fruit whilst gaining structure and adding weight.

Fruit is picked late March to early April, destemmed and passed over a vibrating sorting table, crushed and vinified in small closed fermenters, followed by a term of maceration on skins before being pressed for malolactic. Upon completion, batches are transferred to new French medium toast barrels for nineteen months maturation.
