Vintage 2014 was cool with very slow ripening after Christmas and cool night-time temperatures. Cabernet Sauvignon from our Walker, Quarry and Dead Morris Cabernet vineyards (97.5%), was blended with (2.5%) Petit Verdot, from Dunstan. This wine spent 18 months in tight-grain French oak from Sylvain, Taransaud, and Berger cooperages, before bottling in December 2015.
Deep rich red in colour, the nose is very perfumed with aromas of pure cassis, violets, blackberry and graphite combined with fine mocha-coffee French oak. The palate is structured and elegant with ripe cassis fruit and a fine tannin finish. This wine will reward careful cellaring, and we recommend decanting before drinking.
