Soft cassis fruit character, sage leaf, spice and milk chocolate, and fine gravelly tannin. A typical Margaret River Cabernet style which shows excellent varietal and regional character, the wine is medium-full bodied yet elegant and restrained.
Fruit: Sourced from a low yielding Northern Margaret River site. These 20 year old vines produce very small tight bunches with an intense flavour profile. The fruit is harvested at ideal maturity levels in the cool hours of early morning. Winemaking: A Bordeaux yeast strain is used to capture varietal characters. Once the ferment is active maceration techniques are frequent to aid in extraction of flavour from the skins. Post fermentation the wine spends a period of time on skins to build further structure.
