Enticingly aromatic dark fruit bouquet, with dominant dark cherry fragrances.
A rich flavour profile of blackfruits, spice and undertones of dusty oak. Fine tannins
offer a long, satisfying finish. The overall mouthfeel makes this wine a joy to drink now.
The Cabernet Sauvignon is all estate grown fruit on a gravelly ridge, north facing block. As with all our wines the fruit is cultivated on our recently Organic Certified vineyard, meaning we do not use toxic chemicals on the estate, and we maintain healthy soils using microbiological strategies. The purity in the fruit is expressed in the quality and flavour of the final product.
The grapes are harvested in the cool of the night using the selective harvester high on the ridge of Churchview Block 31.
A period of short cold maceration, followed by fermentation on skins for 7-10 days using a
Bordeaux yeast strain. The wine is transferred to a combination of new and old French oak
barriques for a period of 14 months for maturation. The wine is then lightly filtered and
prepared for bottling.
