Expert Reviews

94 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitShowing seductive notes of cassis, mint chocolate, olive and spicy oak on the nose, it’s succulent and flavoursome on the palate with excellent intensity and persistency. The wine is generous, flavoursome and silky with a delightfully long chalky finish. At its best: now to 2028. AU$25.00.

How's it taste?

Fragrant blackberry and blue fruits, cassis with hints of eucalypt and cedar oak. Displaying distinctive Cabernet characters of cassis, blackberry and plum with minty notes. The wine has fine-grained & elegant tannins with lingering fruit on the back palate

How was it made?

Winter provided average rainfall levels which resulted in good soil moisture for vine budburst in early spring. The balance of the growing season provided a slightly below average temperature leading to a desirable long, slow ripening period. A dry summer and harvest resulted in slightly earlier picking for Cabernet Sauvignon with the resultant wine showing good colour with classic regional varietal flavours and more delicate body and tannins. The premium Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was fermented in 10T static and fermenters and underwent daily pumping over or rolling. Following primary fermentation, the wine was pressed off into tank & a selection of primarily French oak barrels for Malo-lactic fermentation and maturation. During this period, up to three racking’s occurred across the various parcels to assist in tannin integration and aromatic complexity.
