Tasting Notes

Wine

This Special Reserve wine is only produced when we have an exceptional parcel of grapes and the final wine is judged to be worthy of this label.
The intensity of the fruit and varietal characteristics of Langhorne Creek soft tannin Cabernets were integrated with fine oak to develop this wine.

Viticulture
The Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in red sandy loam over clay soil. 2012 was a better than expected growing season,
with good moisture in the soil and mild climatic conditions leading into vintage.
We managed to harvest early and get the ripeness in the fruit with rich flavours and deep colours, while restraining the alcohol to 13.5%

Winemaking

This wine was made in an open top fermenter with a reasonably warm ferment over 8 days,
before being pressed off skins. After malo-lactic fermentation was completed specially selected
new French Oak barrels were used for maturation.
This wine remained in oak for 18 months, showing the well-handled oak playing a supporting role.
