2018 will go down as one of the great vintages of our time. This warm, dry vintage gave us moderate yields that resulted in a deliciously silky and seductive dark fruit spectrum. The intensity and weight is balanced with structure and plenty refreshing acidity that allowed us to pursue a juicier, more slurpable style of Cabernet that is a joy to drink young, yet will beguile with age.This was definitely a Cabernet vintage - the blend comprises of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. As always, the grapes were picked by hand and the fruit was sorted on our state-of-the-art sorting line, de-stemmed and gently crushed. The wine spent 25 days on skins to develop structure, a silky texture yet retain its freshness, brightness and lift. It was then aged in French oak (35% new) for 14 months before being estate bottled in August 2019.

About the wine

Tasting notes

This excellent vintage allowed us to really showcase the structure and flavour spectrum we are capable of achieving in the Yarra Valley. Everything came into balance - The fruit is dark, brooding and mouth coating; the tannins are svelte and long; the acidity is clean and refreshing. It all intertwines seamlessly, to give us a wine we consider to be bright, detailed, elegant and fine.
