The Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the world famous Katnook Estate vineyard in the Coonawarra wine region. Once the grapes have been identified to be of optimum maturation and flavour ripeness, the parcels are brought into the winery where they are destemmed and crushed into the open top fermenters. Manual pump overs are conducted twice daily to provide extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. Towards the end of fermentation, the wine is drained and then pressed to a combination of 77% new French oak barrels for 17 months of maturation. Careful barrel selection takes place before the wine is blended. The wine is neither fined nor filtered.
