This estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Wrattonbully wine region, which adjoins Coonawarra. The prominent viticultural feature is a series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run north to south. These are made up of soft crumbly limestone which weathers to produce the red and brown terra rossa clay loam soils that are so highly prized for growing outstanding Cabernet.
The grapes are harvested and undergo a week’s vinification on skins at 18ºC to 20ºC, followed by an extended term of aging in select French oak barrels.
Full-bodied and smooth with a core of ripe blackberry and black currant fruit with cedar and herbs. The tannins are firm and the overall effect is a balanced wine with great structure.
