Tasting Notes

The wet spring followed by a mild summer lead to a later and compressed harvest for all varieties this year. Our vineyard and winemaking teams worked tirelessly during vintage 2017 to ensure all varieties were harvested at optimal flavour development, producing elegant wines with lower alcohol levels which we are sure will delight our consumers.

Colour

Ruby red with crimson hues.

Aroma

Blackcurrant and mulberry characters

Red cherry, cassis and spice, with velvety tannins and toasty vanillin oak

Food Match

Fillet of venison, vegetarian enchiladas or a selection of cheeses.

Winemaker Notes

Premium parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit were fermented in rotary and static fermenters. Following fermentation on skins for five to seven days they were gently pressed after which the wine was matured on French oak before blending and bottling. A proportion of Merlot was included to add flesh and depth. The resulting wine has excellent depth of colour, richness and complexity.
