  • The majority of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend yields a wine with ripe blackcurrant, a cedar tree, and earthy aromas. Notes of bilberry, spice, and hints of cigar continue on the palate which is enveloped in smooth, ripe tannins. This wine shows lovely balance, depth, and structure with an elegantly spiced finish.

The grapes were manually sorted and destemmed before being gently pressed. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for four weeks, with each plot vinified separately. Malolactic conversion took place in the stainless steel tanks. The wine was then matured in French oak 225 litre barriques for a period of 16 months.
