Vinification

The fruit was harvested on the 12th March 2013 in the cool of the morning, 14 days on skins, with a cold soak for the first 12 hours. The wine pumped over twice per day, after pressing it was matured in 25 % new French oak the balance was 2 and 3 year for 17 months.

Colour

Strong primary core with garnet rim.

Nose

Very earthy Cabernet with olive leaf, cedar spice and layered with red stone fruit, Satsuma plums and blueberry

Palate

Soft elegant palate, very drinkable even in its youth, partly due to good balance of flavours between the fruit characters and savoury notes from the oak.

Notes

This wine is a good medium term cellaring wine, 8-10 years

Reviews

  • Wine Advocate - 89+pt

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals notes of crème de cassis and blueberry pie with suggestions of eucalypt, pencil shavings and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers lovely freshness and finesse with a finely grained backbone and menthol laced finish.
