Thecellar door, which is part of the original winery complex, boasts some stunning panoramic views of the surrounding picturesque valleys and hillsides. Cabernet Sauvignon is traditionally open fermented for ten days on skins, passed through the 1928 vintage basket press into French oak barriques and matured twenty two months.
