Tasting Notes

The dark colour comes from the ripe and dense skins of the Cabernet grapes in the warm autumn sun. The aromas are fresh forest fruits and wild herbs. These fresh berries please the palate, guaranteeing a smooth and easy drinking red.

Vinification

The fruit was crushed into 8 tonne open fermenters and left on skins to cold macerate for three days prior to fermentation. The wine underwent its malolactic transformation in oak, was then racked and returned to French and American oak for a 12-month maturation. Blending was completed just prior to bottling.

Vintage

2014 followed the classic road of a late vintage accompanying a late Easter. Deep soil moisture from a traditional winter flood bolstered us against the warm summer days, as did the cooling Langhorne Creek winds. 2014 in Langhorne Creek is heralded as offering the best Cabernet Sauvignon in over a decade.
