Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (94%), Petit Verdot (6%)
Region: Barossa Valley
Bottle size: 750 mL
Vineyard Soils: Loam over clay (Nuriootpa)
Vine Age: 3 vineyard blocks planted in 1970 / 1985 / 1990
Eyes: Strong primary core with garnet rim.
Nose: Very earthy Cabernet with olive leaf, cedar spice and layered with red stone fruit, Satsuma plums and blueberry.
Mouth: Very elegant palate, soft, silky and very drinkable in its youth; partly due to the nature of the vintage, which has yielded some great wines despite a varied growing season.
Winemaking notes: Fruit was harvested in the cool of the morning on the 5th April, crushed and then cold soaked for 6 hours. Yeast was slowly added to the top of the must, so as not to shock the yeast. The first pump over was not for another 12 hours following. Fermentation was for 9 days then the wine was pressed and allowed to stand for 2 days then racked to barrels - 25% new French Oak and the remainder 2 and 3 year old French barrels.
The wine was matured for 20 months.
