TASTING NOTES

A classic Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – medium weight with intense fruit flavours across the spectrum of red and black berries. This wine has a captivating nose of blackberry, cassis and black cherry with vanilla oak. The palate is medium weight with concentrated fruit, fine tannin and leafy freshness.

SEASON

There were no big heat spikes in the 2018 season, but it was a warm season overall and the harvest was a little early. Cool weather and regular rain up until Christmas made a slow start to the season, setting up good ground moisture and vine health coming into summer. Extended dry, mild weather over January and February maintained steady, healthy fruit development a warm and still “Indian summer” was experienced well into autumn, providing perfect conditions for Cabernet fruit of full ripeness.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked in cool conditions to ensure it reached the winery in perfect condition. It was destemmed then fermented in open fermenters with wild yeasts. Hand plunging and pump overs were used to encourage extraction of flavour and colour. The wine was matured in a mix of old and new French oak for 18 months before blending.

THE VINEYARD

Highbow Hill Vineyard

Highbow Hill Vineyard is made up of 40 hectares of established vines planted on rolling hills just north of the Yarra Valley. The name Highbow Hill Vineyard is derived from the local landscape feature High Bow Hill, which is the dominant feature on the eastern boundary of the property.

Soils are sandy loam over clay and gravel over mudstone.

The long driveway meanders through the vines to the residence and provides uninterrupted views of the lake-sized dam and surrounding panorama.
