Winemaker’s Notes:

The grapes were totally destemmed and then transferred to stainless steel fermenters. The different vats were fermented with either natural and with selected strain of Bordeaux yeast to express particular fruit aromas and flavours. The wine was pressed and transferred to a 9000 litre French oak wooden foudre for eighteen months. The result is a balanced wine of lovely fruit with soft fine tannins with complex aromas and flavours. Such a wine will benefit from further ageing over the next 7 to 10 years.

 

Tasting Note:

Lifted blackberry fruits dominate the bouquet with cedar and varietal leafy nuances. Ripe and rich in flavour, the mixed fruits and earthy notes are framed by fine tannins that are integrated. The decomposed red volcanic soils contribute to the earthy notes, which add further richness and complexity to the wine. This is a classic Central King Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, ripe but balanced with persistent fruit and varietal character,
