    Barossa Valley - Single vineyard

    This wine is a blend from three hillside cabernet sauvignon blocks all with an easterly aspect and minimal topsoil. It dispays bright varietal fruit and a balanced palate.

    Vineyard founder Keith Hentschke went against the grain when selecting three hillside sites to plant Cabernet, and the risk has paid off.

    Variety
    100% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Vineyard
    The fruit from our three Cabernet blocks and one other high quality block in the North Western section of the Barossa Valley were blended to create this wine. All blocks have shallow clay over limestone soils, easterly aspects, a gentle slope and a north- south row orientation.

    Vintage
    2013- Well below average winter rainfall and warm conditions in early spring resulted in an early start to the growing season with budburst two weeks earlier than the long-term average. These conditions continued through flowering and for the remainder of the growing season with only 4.5 mm of rainfall recorded over the period. This resulted in very low crop levels with great intensity in both colour and flavour.

    Winemaking
    A combination of techniques including whole bunch addition and extended maceration were used to ensure complexity and varietal balance. The wine was basket-pressed into a combination of new (10%) and old French (45%) and American (45%) oak, where it underwent secondary fermentation. The wine was matured in oak for a total of 10 months. Bottling preparation involved minimal fining and no filtration. – Winemaker, Andrew Quin

    Profile
    Lifted aromatics are the key component of this pretty wine. Notes of boysenberry, sour cherry, marzipan and fresh green foliage fill the nose and are mirrored on the palate, characters which complement the soft, rich palate texture. A luscious and ready-to-drink Cabernet.
