Dark berries – Bay leaf – Fine tannins
Complex characters of Cassis fruit, black cherry and tobacco and coffee on the palate combine with long firm tannins to create a rich, ripe classic example of Yarra Valley Cabernet. All three of our Cabernet blocks were hand-picked and then fruit specifically selected for this wine. Predominantly mature vine fruit was fermented wild in open pots for 7-10 days, with a twice-daily pump-over to extract optimum flavour and tannin. Pressed when dry in to new (30%) and seasoned French oak for 18 months.
