Raspberries, light spice and red floras
Raspberries, blueberries and subtle oak spice
A cool wet spring paired with great soil health set the tone for a great start to the warm summer. As the weather started to turn, leaf plucking and fruit dropping were instigated, putting us in a strong position for the warm wet conditions to come. Further canopy and fruit management allowed us to pick with optimum ripeness and great fruit intensity.
The fruit was handpicked at a variety of ripeness levels to create complexity within the fruit flavour profile. Once in the winery the fruit was hand sorted and processed for fermentation in stainless steel. Maturing in a selection of new and old oak for a period of 12 months of which 18% was new, created a delicate and approachable style of Margaret River Cabernet.
