2012 was a one of those wonderful year’s where mother nature provides the kind of climatic conditions that sees both winemakers and vignerons get excited.
We saw sufficient, but not excessive rainfall which fell at the right times. There was also a lack of excessive heat. These combined ensuring that the ripening cyclewas slow and deliberate resulting in great fruit depth, structure and balance to many of the wines produced from this year.

Winery Tasting Notes
Dense with dark purple hues
Deep and controlled with fresh, crunchy dark fruit supported by subtler secondary notes of cedar and sandalwood which provide a restrained edge to the wine. Ends with just a faint hint of classic Cabernet perfume to provide a clue at variety.
Attractive creamy dark berry compote fruit is supported by a fresh and a focused line of travel through the palate. This dark fruit holds firm, deep and long before just a hint of dusty tannins shows late working around the edges, providing another layer and rounding out the wine.
Drink to 2021
