VINTAGE:
The vintage of 2018 was challenging because it was the fourth consecutive year of drought, bringing dry conditions with water restrictions. Careful water management was essential, but the benefit of the dry weather meant very healthy vines. The dry conditions also resulted in smaller berries, which in turn provide excellent colour and flavour intensity. Cooler nights towards the end of February meant a longer hang time, allowing for further flavour development. Despite the irrigation challenges and a smaller crop, 2018 bodes very well for high-quality wines.

VINIFICATION:
Made from a designated Single Vineyard (Block 4), Estate-grown grapes are picked and sorted by hand. Harvest parcels and clones are vinified separately. Clusters are destemmed, crushed and pumped into open-top fermentation tanks where they undergo a 14-21-day maceration period involving a 7-day fermentation with pump-overs and manual punchdowns 2-4 times daily. Barrel maturation in 100% French oak barrels (50% new, 50% 2nd fill), in 300l barrels for 22 months.

TASTING NOTES:
Deep, opaque ruby with a prominent bouquet of cedar, pencil shavings and dark chocolate rounded out with cassis and black cherry. A full-bodied, classic Cabernet in a Bordeaux style, this wine shows fine-grained tannins and velvety acidity. Blackberries and mulberries complement savoury spice – coriander seed and juniper. Structured and powerful, this is a Cabernet that will continue developing complexity as it ages.
