Tasting Notes

Viticulture

2005 was a good growing season, this allowed the fruit to ripen evenly and infuse rich flavours into the wine. The grapes were harvested at the optimum time to deliver the intensity of the fruit and varietal characteristics of Langhorne Creek Cabernets.

Winemaking

This wine was made as a  small batch  (10 tonne) with a reasonably  warm ferment over 7 days, before being pressed off skins into a combination of 50% new French Oak and 50% 1-2 year old  French Oak Barriques.  This wine remained in oak for 12 months maturation, gaining the layered complexity now evident in the finished wine
