Product Tasting Notes
WINEMAKER’S NOTE: Deep colour with the classic bouquet of briar Cabernet and unmistakably Margaret River this wine has a velvety and fine structured palate.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS: The 2018 growing season was characterised by above average winter rains followed by a dry spring free of high winds that led to good flowering and fruit set. Slightly cool and dry conditions prevailed into summer leading to long and consistent ripening. These were ideal conditions for our reds with a fine Indian summer that help develop excellent colours and fine tannin structures in the final wine.
VINEYARDS: Located in north of the Margaret River region our vineyard was planted almost 20 years ago. Low yielding and now mature.
VINIFICATION: Machine picked grapes were fermented in static fermenter and pumped over daily. On dryness, the wine was run to seasoned French oak barrels. It was finally bottled after 16 months in oak and laid down for further maturation until release.
