Fruit Source

A single vineyard wine from the 43-year old original plantings. Unirrigated to this day, the vineyard is sustainably farmed following organic principles. The fruit was hand-picked from 17th March & then between 2 nd â€?4 th April at 13.0° to 14.0° Bé


Brilliant deep garnet with purple hues


A complex and concentrated nose suggestive of blue fruits, dark chocolate, vanilla & a touch of cedar


An example of power with finesse showing concentrated fruit flavours, integrated oak & seamless tannins


A blend of 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure & flavour), 4.5% Cabernet Franc (perfume & smoothness), 4.5% Malbec (colour &richness),& 4.5% Merlot(body& softness),which is carefully hand-picked, then sorted for optimum quality. The fruit is cold-soaked for four days which allows a gentle extraction of colour, aroma & flavour pre-ferment; the cool temperature prevents the ferment from initiating. The fruit spends between 16-21 days on skins to extract colour, tannin & flavour, with the ferment taking place in hand-plunged open fermenters with maturation in French barriques for 18 months, of which 50% are new.

Food Suggestion

Scotch fillet with mixed mushroom sauce
