2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Nine small, separate blocks of estate grown fruit harvested over a period of two weeks were selected for this vintage. The components were matured in twenty percent new French Oak for 14 months, the result being a wine of complexity through vineyard expression and time in oak.
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.
Vibrant deep crimson with ruby hues.
Bright and fresh blackberry flavours continue on the medium bodied palate with savour dark chocolate mingling with the fine grained dusty tannin structure.
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next five to eight years with careful cellaring.
