The Yarra Valley is renowned for producing red wines of restraint and finesse. The temperate climate allows full flavour and colour development without excessive ripeness, resulting in wines that are balanced and subtle.

Region:  Estate-grown

Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Harvest date:  19th March

Vintage conditions:

The fruit was in perfect condition because of warm and dry weather overall, with the odd very hot day. This trend has been stressful for some varieties but particularly good for Cabernet. We cropped these vines to a very low yield, and this combined with the vines’ age, a change to organically certified fertilizers, the ideal north-south aspect of the rows and the weather made for absolutely stunning fruit.

Analysis:

Alcohol: 13.5%
