Black Betty is really pure fruited with blue, black and red berries, hints of sage, fresh tobacco, chocolate and cedar adding layers of complexity.
The blackberries and herbs follow on the palate with layered fine chocolate tannins.
Black Betty is a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon showcasing the power and richness of the north of Margaret River. The vineyard is in the Yallingup subregion.
Handpicked and de-stemmed to small open-top fermenters, we let the ferments go wild. Hand-plunging often and vigourously we press ferments off skins when the tannins are melting in your mouth, about 5 weeks after ferment starts. Maturation was in 2 new and 2 1-year old puncheons.
