Vineyard Notes
Vintage 2018 arrived premature after an early budburst in Spring. A long, dry season resulted in virtually no disease pressure throughout the region. Winemakers were able to make picking decisions purely on when grapes displayed perfect ripeness. Cool nights allowed beautiful acid retention and concentrated varietal flavours.
Winemaking
A delicious blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, from grapes grown in the Hunter Valley.
Tasting Notes
The palate is full and fruit driven with savoury plum flavours. Perfect balance of integrated oak and soft silky tannins.
Colour
Bright deep crimson red
Palate
The palate is full and fruit driven with savoury plum flavours. Perfect balance of integrated oak and soft silky tannins.
Food Matches
Braised lamb shanks and hearty winter fare.
