The wine opens with classic aromas of mulberry, cassis and cedar.
The palate is rich and powerful showing generous redcurrant, mulberry and dark
chocolate flavours. A soft and supple backbone of tannin gives this Cabernet a long and
precise evolution through the palate.
Machine Harvested fruit is delivered to the winery where it is crushed and destemmed
to a fermenter. Selected yeast is added and a controlled fermentation is conducted over
a 14 day period.
During fermentation the wine is pumped over the skins twice a day to facilitate colour
and tannin extraction. A period of post fermentation maceration on-skins has been
employed for this batch to further ameliorate and soften the tannin profile of this wine.
Following fermentation and extended skin contact the wine is matured in approximately
50% new and a selection of one and two year old French oak barriques. After maturation
the wine is assembled before a light egg fining and filtration prior to bottling.
