Deep garnet red with a deep dark core. Rich aromatic classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon on the nose showing intense blackberry, mocha, dark cherry and cassis. Some chocolate notes with really pretty violet undertones whilst some pencil shavings provide another level of complexity. The palate has great depth and persistence featuring an alluring smooth and lush texture with rich dark mulberry, chocolate and ripe cherry. The long persistent tannins drift along seamlessly with wonderful balance between tannin and oak which enables this. The alcohol is barely evident, but the signs of positive development show through on the finish with some alluring leather saddle.
Fruit was sourced from our finest section of Cabernet Sauvignon from three outstanding vineyards all within the famed terra rossa soils we are so famous for. The 2016 vintage was excellent with warm dry summer followed by cool autumn temperatures which are perfect conditions from Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra in particular. A quick flowering period with warm temperatures enables a great fruit set which gave us dark coloured wine with outstanding fruit concentration and acid structure. Fermentation was in both open and static fermenters, extended maceration was key to develop complexity between the fruit and tannins. Matured in a mixture of new and second fill French oak for 24 months.
