|Region||It's a secret|
|Colour||Intense red purple.|
|Growing Conditions||An excellent vintage with warm days & cool nights throughout the season allowing fruit to ripen to full flavour maturity with minimal disease pressure. The vines were able to ripen with minimal water stress, due to fuller soil profiles from the previous two seasons, with flowering and bunch set occurring with no issues. A warm February and March with no heat spikes allowed for excellent flavour development with nil stress. Fruit was picked in ideal conditions.|
|Vinification/Maturation||Harvested in the cool of the morning then gently destemmed into open top fermenters. After a minimum maceration period of 14 days the ferments are air bag pressed, settled and racked to oak for maturation. Oak used was a combination of French hogsheads at 35% new, the balance being 1 to 3 year old barrels. Maturation in barrels for 16 months with minimal rackings before being carefully blended, lightly fined with egg whites and filtered before bottling|

Scoring an outstanding 95 points at the 2016 Halliday Australian Cabernet Challenge, this wine presents a wonderfully aromatic and distinctly varietal nose of vibrant blackberry and redcurrant fruits and this translates to the mouth… a classically structured, medium bodied Cabernet with silky cassis (blackcurrant) and dark chocolate fruit. It finishes with fine, dry chamois tannins to give the wine tremendous length and structure.
