Deep and dark wine with some red and purple glimpses. Lovely intense nose with aromas blackberry, mulberry, cassis, earth, licorice and blackberry. Classical McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon with our trademark style, the wine bursts onto the palate although is smooth as silk. Firm Cabernet Sauvignon tannins sensational fruit weight with highlighted notes of blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, earth and just enough spice to add another level of complexity. The flavours evolve in the mouth and finish off with intensity typical of our style of wines.

"Some lovely sweet fruit here, generous and ripe; soft and rich. Excellent balance, even though a tad leafy."
China Wine & Spirit Awards Best Value 2018
2016 will be remembered for rich and intense flavours and perhaps Cabernet Sauvignon will be the hero variety of the vintage. After handpicking whole bunches we allowed the fruit to be cold macerated for 24 hours to ensure brightness and depth of flavour. After this fermentation occurred in small open top fermenters with specific yeast strains and we hand plunged over a two-week period. Then we basket pressed and drained into 30% New French oak and 70% older American oak hogshead barrels for a period of 12 months before bottling with minimal fining or filtration to ensure the wines true character was fulfilled.
