This wine is bright red purple in colour. It has lifted aromas of blackcurrant and red berries, with spiciness from its time in French oak. The palate is medium bodied with concentrated cassis fruit characters. Strength from the tannin structure holds the palate together which will ensure a long life in the cellar.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2016 meant budburst happened 2 weeks earlier than usual. Normally this puts us at slight risk to frost but some spring rainfall helped the frost stay away and ensured healthy growth in the vines. While it was a dry growing season, maximum temperatures were still moderate and the harvest dates for all varieties ended up falling back to the their expected times, not earlier as experienced in other grape-growing regions. The Hilltops region is blessed with mostly drier and warmer days with some cooling relief at night due to its continental position. This fruit was harvested in the coolness of the early morning then underwent fermentation on skins in open fermenters with specially selected Bordeaux yeast. The wine was hand plunged twice daily to build colour and structure. The Cabernet was pressed into 20% new French oak from Francois Freres, Mercurey and Sirugue. Maturation was for 9 months before blending and bottling
