Summary

Barossa Valley is cooler than is generally believed, with average temperatures close to those of Bordeaux and Margaret River. Barossa Valley, having the foundations for the great varieties of Bordeaux, produces enviable Cabernet Sauvignon

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
