Sourced from one of the finest vineyards in Young, NSW, in the heart of the Hilltops region, at an elevation of around 600m.
A full bodied style, our dense, dark Cabernet shows lifted ripe cassis fruit, subtle tones of dried herbs and cedary oak with a long gently tannic finish.
The fruit was sourced from Moppity Vineyard and was picked late March at around 14 be.
After picking, the fruit was crushed and destemmed into open top fermenters, where a warm even fermentation took place. Once pressed the wine was transferred to a mixture of 1-3 year old French oak barriques for maturation.
Though drinking beautifully now, this fine wine will gain further complexity and interest over the next 5-8 years.
An ideal match for red meats, hard cheeses and game dishes.
