Vintage : 2014
Variety : 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Colour : Deep purple with crimson hues.
Aromatics : Aromatic nose of concentrated blackcurrant fruit with dark chocolate and violet notes.
Palate : A concentrated wine with layers of dark berry and blackcurrant fruit, mingling with dark chocolate and crushed leaf notes. Long lingering finish.
Cellaring : Will reward careful cellaring for 5-7 years or more.
Vineyard Notes: 2014 was a low yielding vintage with yields down by as much as 30% which produced concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with rich textures and flavours. Selected from 2 of our premium vineyards with vines average age of 25-45yrs.
Winemakers Notes: Whilst coming from 2 vineyards, these produced 5 separate parcels of fruit. This provides us with some strong blending options. The wine spent 15 months in a combination of new and used French oak barrels, of which 20% were new.
Food Pairing: Roast beef with Cabernet and quince jus.
