Sweet spice, blueberries and mulberries
Intense blueberries, blackcurrants and cassis backed by siky tannins and a fruitful lengthy finish
The 2020 vintage in Margaret River was one of the best the region had seen in many years. With lower rainfall and higher than average temperatures it allowed for a perfect growing season. No early bird pressure and precision crop management gave the fruit optimal opportunity to achieve full flavour ripeness. The great growing season can easily be seen in the fruit profiles that this wine displays.
The fruit was hand harvested from various blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon on our single site vineyard. The fruit was processed over the sorting table and transferred to fermentation tanks where it was left on skins for 18 days. After fermentation the wine was pressed and transferred to a selection of French Bordeaux barriques and matured for 18 months. Post maturation the wine was blended, filtered and bottled in November 2021.
