2013 Single Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
A deep purple red colour leads to a complex bouquet, aromatic and lifted with a briar-like quality. The palate is tightly wound with great length of flavour, structured finish and fine natural grape tannins to resolve the finish.
A warm start to the vintage was moderated by later rains that cooled the region considerably and saw a vintage of fine and consistent quality fruit. Reds are rich and deep.
Drawn from our northern Margaret River vineyard, hand-picked from a lyre trellis, a rarity these days.
Lyre trellis and handpicked. Open fermenters plunged twice daily and irrigated in between times. Run off to oak at dryness and matured quietly for twelve months before further bottle maturation prior to release.
