    100% Cabernet Sauvignon
    Food Suggestions
    Ideally suited to rare duck with cranberry sauce, various steak and lamb dishes and hard cheeses such as Gruyere and mature cheddar.
    In The Vineyard
    Good, healthy fruit was picked at optimum ripeness - determined by aroma assessment (i.e. maximum fruit intensity).
    About The Harvest
    The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon was picked at optimum ripeness, with half of the fruit coming form Devon Valley and the balance from Villiera.
    In The Cellar
    The wine was fully crushed and fermented in pumpover fermenters at ± 25°C. Full MLF occurred in tank before blending and racking to barrels. The wine was matured for just over a year in French oak barrels (including 25% new).
