A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

A big-hearted and stylish Cabernet from a warm season in the Yarra Valley.

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 16 - 18°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 5 years

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.

SEASON

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.

With its stunning hills and dales ranged before a backdrop of blue mountains, elevations vary greatly. The climate is Mediterranean with a maritime influence from Port Phillips.
