2018

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

A medium red with purple hues to the rim, the nose is bursting with dark cherry and blackberry fruit that is backed by the faintest of oak induced spice. The palate builds with cherry fruit moving to blackberry alongside tannins that are characterised by graphite, cigar box, and earth. The finish sees a return of drying dark fruits with impressive length. Give this wine time and watch it flourish.

Winemaker notes

The gentle west facing exposure and red/brown, rocky, free-draining soils of the Peerick Vineyard in Moonambel, provides ideal ripening conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. Matured in French oak hogsheads (20% new) for 12 months, there is cassis, dark chocolate, mint, and fine chalky tannins driving a long and persistent finish. From the cooler 2017 vintage, the Cabernet is long and fine with vibrancy and freshness.
