The Ravenswood Lane wines are made exclusively for us at the state-of-the-art The
Lane Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Small parcels of fruit are hand selected to
produce wines with impeccable provenance; each wine is a delicious combination
of site, personality and experience that brings the vibrancy of the vineyard into every
glass. Vineyard Manager Marty Edwards works closely with esteemed winemaker
Michael Schreurs (former head winemaker at Henschke) following a philosophy of
minimal intervention, respect for organic principles and capturing the essence of
each site and variety. They have achieved this and more, in these inspirational
2013 was perfect for ripening Cabernet Sauvignon in the Adelaide Hills. November
rains led to abundant canopies promoting fantastic ripening power and protection
for the ensuing heat that prevailed for remainder the vintage. Vintage started early
thanks to the consistently warm and sunny dry days throughout January and
February. The Cabernet is always the last variety to be picked, was picked in early
April – later than anticipated thanks to the clear, cold, starlit nights which kept the
sugars moderate and acidity vibrant. Stunning conditions for Cabernet.
The Cabernet was planted in 1993 on a north-facing slope at 440 metres above sea
level. The soil type is the classic Ravenswood Lane ancient lithosols (ancient broken
down limestone) topsoil over red podzolic clays. The vines are single cordon cane
pruned to regulate yields and a strict VSP canopy management. The vines are
green harvested back to one bunch per shoot at veraison.
The hand selected fruit was destemmed and hand sorted in the winery before whole
berries are fermented in small temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Each
parcel was kept separately and carefully monitored for approximately 30 days
during and post fermentation. The wine was then basket-pressed straight to French
oak barriques (20% new and a mix of coopers). The wine spent 15 months in barrel
before blending and bottling.
Very smart cultured and balanced. The fruit is refreshing yet the dominant cassis
notes are pure and lifted. Very fine lasting tannins on the finish.
An ideal match with grilled lamb cutlets and simple fillet steak.
