TASTING NOTES
Classic Yarra Valley Cabernet Smooth & Fleshy. A light to medium-bodied mix of cassis, rosemary, black olive and a touch of mint; silky, powdery texture with length and balance.

All fruit is hand-picked in the morning and chilled overnight as whole clusters down to ten degrees. In the morning, the fruit is gently destemmed but not crushed into open-top fermenters.

The fruit is then left to soak at ambient temperatures’ before the onset of natural fermentation. Remontage and delastage were used for cap management. Post-fermentation maceration lasted about two weeks for the tannins to soften and for the structure to become linear. On completion of maceration, the wine was gently pressed and transferred to a combination of new, first and second fill barriques. After 14 months of barrel maturation, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration. 

REVIEWS

94 Points - The Real Review

Deepish red/purple colour. A lovely clean, fresh fragrance of flowers and dried herbs, red fruits rather than black, and touches of classy oak skilfully entwined with the fruit. An intense, firmly-structured but elegant red, with a long, long carry and evidently a bright cellaring future. Huon Hooke
