2013 saw low rainfall in spring with January being quite dry and warm. The dry weather allowed fruit to reach optimum ripeness providing a good balance of acidity and flavour. Some light showers in late February to help freshen the fruit with vintage starting later than usual but finishing quickly by the end of March.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vineyards were selected that the attributes of flavour and structure complemented each other and then monitored to select the fruit when the flavours and sugar ripeness were in balance. Fermentation at warmer temperatures of 24-26°C for five to seven days to optimise the extraction of desirable flavour and colour whilst retaining a soft tannin structure.
Alc/Vol: 13.50% pH: 3.55 TA: 6.3 g/L
