THE FINER DETAILS

TASTING NOTES

The Yarra Valley has a long pedigree of refined Cabernet Sauvignon wines. This is a great example of the style – medium weight with red and black fruits, a touch of leafy freshness and fine tannin.

VINTAGE

Vintage 2016 was a warm, dry season in the Yarra Valley and yields were around average. Harvest was up to a month earlier than long-term averages and arrived very quickly.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was picked in mid-March, a very early start for Cabernet. It was destemmed then vinified in overhead fermenters with pumping over. The wine was aged in tank for 15 months on quality French barrel staves.
