Cassis fruit with hints of mint make this wine a definitive Cabernet Sauvignon. Elements of vanilla, cinnamon and mocha from oak maturation have augmented the fruit and contribute complexity.
This full flavoured, rich Cabernet Sauvignon has blackberry fruit flavours within a medium-full bodied structure. It has a beautiful persistence, long tannins and a round acidity to finish.
The fruit selected for this wine comes from four vineyard blocks to the south of the McLaren Vale township. Following fermentation on skins for 6-7 days, the wine was pressed and a proportion allowed to complete fermentation with new French Oak. 9% Cabernet Franc was included to add a mint note to the wine. Our philosophy is to augment, rather than dominate, the fruit with oak and to produce a wine with elegance and good palate length. Named after the picker's hut at the front of the property, our Hut Block vineyards are planted on sand and black clay loam soils over a substructure of clay. We think that the intensity of our Cabernet Sauvignon can be attributed to these soils, while the mild maritime climate of McLaren Vale, in which cool evening and night breezes from the gully winds moderate the day time temperatures, suits this variety. Our emphasis is on low yielding vines that are pruned and trained to allow dappled light to reach the fruit zone to slow ripening and enhance aroma and flavour.
