WINEMAKERS NOTES

The growing season was drier than average, and careful irrigation to optimise flavour development worked very well. Harvest was two weeks early, the result of a warmer than average October which advanced the whole season. There was a cooler finish with mild ripening conditions

The grapes were harvested in the first week in April. The grapes were mechanically harvested and crushed in the field. Initial fermentation was carried out in open fermenters and the cap was hand plunged twice a day. One third of the wine was run off into new French oak hogsheads, where fermentation was completed. The balance of the wine completed fermentation on skins, and was then transferred to barrels. The wine was bottled under screw cap, in February 2018, after eighteen months aging in French oak hogsheads.

TASTING NOTES:

Colour: Medium red with purple hints.

Bouquet: Plenty of cassis with some savoury notes

Palate: The mid-weight palate displays rich fruit and fine-grained tannins with a long and flavoursome finish. A classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon of elegance, flavour and structure.
