"94 Points. A complex wine both in terms of flavour and texture; soft but generous cassis/blackcurrant fruit is the prime mover, coupled with quality French oak. Cabernet tannins are in evidence, as they should be. $50.00 Alcohol: 14.5% Drink By: 2031. Screwcap"- James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

Harvest occurred early April 2016. Small parcels are hand-picked and all batches are sorted to remove matter other than grapes before fermentation. Fermentation occurred in closed stainless steel fermenters. Selected parcels remained on skins post the fermentation to further enhance the tannin profile while others were pressed at dryness to capture fruit vibrancy. Each batch is matured separately in order to build a wine history over time. Barrel maturation - 18 months in 40% new and 60% older French oak barriques. After a light egg white fining and filtration, the wine is bottled.
