Tasting Notes

Our Cabernet block provides great consistency for growing grapes.Beautiful blackberry, spice and cassis are the hallmarks of this variety. The 2018 Reserve Cabernet has captured all these characters and more on the nose and palate. The palate complements the perfume of this wine with lovely cool climate Yarra Valley characters of tobacco leaf, cassis and black fruits. Beautiful oak influences the palate and integrates with the fruit and tannin profile to deliver an elegant yet rich Cabernet. Easily matched to cheese, roast beef, tagines and rich lentil dishes.

Process

Harvested at the end of March 2018. Fermentation commenced after two days of cold soaking. A mix of pump over and plunging was employed. Post primary fermentation the fruit was pressed straight to oak. 30% new oak, balance in older barrels.

Bottled: February 2019
