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.
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.
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.
