Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from a vineyard in the North of the Heathcote Region, in Colbinabbin. Harvested by hand to capture the rich black cherry and pepper flavours. A 12-day ferment followed by 18 months ageing in seasoned French oak.
Warm spice, plum and black-current. A savoury rush with herbaceous undertones, toasted cedar aromas and delicate tannins. A long, fleshed out palate with good acidity and structure.
