Tasting Notes

A dense, complex and classically structured Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage shows some of the elegance and refinement of fine Bordeaux. The nose is a blend of cassis, black currant and black cherry with a tinge of mocha and vanilla/wood spice. The palate is beautifully structured with firm tannin and delicate acidity lifting the various flavours including, currant, dark chocolate, cassis, cedar and violet. Pair with roast beef tenderloin with pan juice, braised beef short ribs, grilled prime rib, sharp aged cheddar.

Technical Notes

The grapes were crushed to one tonne bins and a small stainless steel tank. After a two day cold soak, the Cabernet Sauvignon began fermentation. With regular manual punch-down of the caps. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel where it aged for 20 months. The barrels were all French oak with 63% being new wood. After much tasting and deliberation, 8 barrels made it to this blend.
