Wine tasting notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of dark red fruits and blackberry pie accented with a touch of clove. Opulent on the palate with rich flavours of blackcurrant and plum which intermingle seamlessly with the soft, round tannins to create a long, delicious finish.

Vinification Notes

Minimal intervention winemaking techniques were used to allow the true Californian terroir to shine through. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with native and selected yeasts. Minimal pump-overs took place to avoid over-extraction of tannins. Minimal use of French oak influenced the maturation which lasted for six months, adding subtle complexity.
