- 5 STAR HALLIDAY RATED WINERY
Medium red with purple hints. Plenty of cassis with some savoury notes. The mid-weight palate displays rich fruit and fine-grained tannins with a long and flavoursome finish. A classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon of elegance, flavour and structure.
93 Points Huon Hooke
Aromas of thyme and other dried herbs, mint and black fruits, with briary overtones. Aromatic, fresh, bright berry aromas and flavours. Very good. An elegant cabernet.
93 Points Toni Paterson, The Real Review
Lovely colour density. Pure cassis aromatics with good concentration on the mid-palate, though the wine is still quite tightly-bound with prominent acidity and tannin. It has lovely varietal and regional character, but it needs some time in bottle to reveal its true personality
The growing season was drier than average, and careful irrigation to optimise flavour development worked very well. Harvest was two weeks early, the result of a warmer than average October which advanced the whole season. There was a cooler finish with mild ripening conditions
The grapes were harvested in the first week in April. The grapes were mechanically harvested and crushed in the field. Initial fermentation was carried out in open fermenters and the cap was hand plunged twice a day. One third of the wine was run off into new French oak hogsheads, where fermentation was completed. The balance of the wine completed fermentation on skins, and was then transferred to barrels. The wine was bottled under screw cap, in February 2018, after eighteen months aging in French oak hogsheads.
