The fruit for this wine was grown at our Bridge creek vineyard in Orange at an altitude of 850m, giving the wine wonderful cool-climate elegance and fruit definition.
2018 was a warm and dry growing season, perfect conditions for growing the late ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. The beautifully ripe fruit came into the winery in immaculate condition resulting in our second Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon.
The complex nose reveals aromas of mint, spicy blackcurrant, bay leaf, dried herbs, and subtle mocha oak. The palate has excellent flavour and concentration, with the typical cool-climate acid and medium-bodied structure we get from this vineyard.
This elegant style has lovely palate weight and balance with rich and lingering currant flavours all the way through to the long and satisfying finish. The Cabernet tannins are there, but perfectly ripe and smooth. Delicious cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon! Great with beef and lamb. This wine will age beautifully over the next 10 years, or more.
