2012 Single Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Makers Notes

Deep purple red colour, the nose is aromatic and lifted with a briar-like quality. The palate is structured and tight but with no meanness or austerity. There is great length of flavour with a nice structured finish and a spade of good natural grape tannins to boot.

Vintage Notes

The 2012 growing season was dominated by a succession of warm fronts which swept over the southwest in the new year, however, some good spring rains left the soil moistures sufficient to carry through and in the end a great year for reds, born out by proof in the bottle.

Vineyard Notes

Northern Margaret River, we’ve taken this fruit for some time, hand picked from a lyre trellis, a rarity these days.

Vinification Notes

Open fermenters plunged twice daily and irrigated in between times. Run off to barrels at dryness and matured quietly for twelve months before further bottle maturation prior to release.
