Vineyard Notes: 2017 was a good vintage for Cabernet in McLaren Vale which produced concentrated fruit with rich textures and flavours. Selected from 2 of our premium vineyards aged 25 years and 50 years.
Winemakers Notes: Picked in the early hours of the morning, the wine was crushed and then fermented on skins for 10 days. The wine was then aged for 15 months in a combination of new and used French oak barrels, of which 15% were new.
