Overview

Harvest timing of Cabernet Sauvignon is critical so as to assure balance of flavour and optimum tannin ripeness. Handled individually in small parcels, the fruit was carefully monitored throughout fermentation to ensure the preservation of fruit characters and ensure only the finest tannins are extracted. Upon completion of primary fermentation, each batch is transferred to French oak for maturation over the ensuing 16 months. Careful grading of all barrels ensures that the final blend delivers the most balanced and expressive example of the variety.

Expert Reviews

Bright colour; the bouquet offers lifted aromas of redcurrant, cassis and leafy complexity; medium-bodied with fresh acidity and compact tannins, the finish is even and offers an expansive array of black fruits to conclude. Rating 88 - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)
