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.

Vintage:
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.

Colour:
Vibrant deep crimson with ruby hues.

Palate:
Bright and fresh blackberry flavours continue on the medium bodied palate with savour dark chocolate mingling with the fine grained dusty tannin structure.

Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next five to eight years with careful cellaring.

Alcohol:
14.5%
