Tasting Notes:

A dense full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon showing notes of supple blackcurrant, black plum, cedar wood and spice which follows on to the palate. The palate offers additional characteristics of pencil shavings, tea leaf and molasses. Balanced with a good acidity and integrated ripe tannins. A lingering finish to complete a wine that will benefit from future bottle maturation of up to 20 years from vintage date.

On average 25 year-old vines. Decomposed granite and Hutton soils with a high clay content which assist with water retention.

5 days on skins in open fermenters at 29 C. Cap punched manually every 2nd hour.

24 months in 50% new 225lt French Nevers, with 50% second fill.
