A superb example of Cabernet...

Growing Cabernet Sauvignon in a cool climate like Gippsland is a precarious occupation.  The varietal is prone to exhibit vegetal / green bean aroma and flavour when the grapes are not fully ripened. These characteristics, coupled with the more aggressive tannin structure natural to Cabernet, only become accentuated with time in the bottle making for a difficult drinking experience. On the other hand, when Cabernet is cropped at low levels and allowed to fully ripen, the fruit flavours that result are often astonishing. The fruit for this wine was picked in early May after a warm and dry season resulting in wonderful ripe fruit flavours and sophistication of style.

Opaque deep black crimson colour, with deep crimson hue. Lifted, perfumed nose of spice, liquorice, blackcurrant, violets and dark chocolate. The palate has excellent length and depth. Flavours of cedar, cigar box and blackcurrant emerge over a fine dry chalky tannin background. A refined style, showing elegance and perfect balance. Very long aftertaste of blackcurrant, spice and white pepper.
