Winemaker's Notes

The Cabernet Sauvignon on our vineyard produces small berries with a high skin to juice ratio. The result is a wine that is intense and structured yet is rich and has the ripe flavor for which McLaren Vale is renowned. The fruit was picked late in the season when ripe and, after fermentation, matured for 18 months in American and French oak of varying ages.

The color is a deep dark vibrant crimson. The bouquet has lifted ripe berry fruit and blackcurrant with some vanillin and cedary oak characters as well as classic cassis Cabernet aromas. The palate has plenty of berry fruit, vanillin oak and fine tannins. An intense and structured wine with rich fruit and a long finish.
