A captivating nose of blackberry and dark cherry fruits with mocha and chocolate oak character. The medium weight palate has savoury berry flavours, robust tannins and a long finish.
This wine is from a single high-performing block at Highbow Hill Vineyard. The wine was aged in French oak barriques, 40 per cent new, for 15 months. The fruit was hand harvest in late-March/early April and fermented in static red fermenters.
This is a monoclonal wine of G9V3 Cabernet Sauvignon, an unfashionable clone in some circles, but in this vineyard, on this hill, a superb example of the variety.
