    Tasting Notes

    The weight of fruit in the 2013 Directors’ Cut Cabernet Sauvignon showcases how much of Langhorne Creek, Ben can fit into one bottle. An almost impenetrable core of fruit is seasoned with dark spice like licorice, nutmeg and anise. The long finish heralds many years of future ageing and assures the palate of great quality. The enjoyment of this fine wine need not be delayed, but age will bring dividends.

    Vinification

    Only the finest Cabernet vineyards in Langhorne Creek contributed to Directors’ Cut. The old vine fruit is the cornerstone of this wine’s character. The fruit was harvested at night to retain freshness. Initial skin contact was followed by 7 days of cool fermentation with our Rhône isolate yeast and hand-plunging three times daily. Maturation then occurred in 75% new oak hogsheads for approximately 14 months.

    Vintage

    2013 was a gentle year that yielded wines of great potential. The growing period presented a minor frost event in September and a cool early flowering period. Reduced and variable fruit set in early flowering blocks impacted yields particularly for Cabernet Sauvignon. Overall yields were 5% down on the already reduced 2012 vintage. However, the ripening season yielded Cabernet of exceptional quality.
