      Quick Description [+]
      This Cabernet is a medium-bodied, spicy wine with plenty of intrigue thanks to a flavour profile of blackcurrant, mulberry, vanilla and coffee.
      Flavour [+]
      Flavours of mulberry, brambleberry and blackcurrant play wonderfully with the dusty tannins and creamy vanilla oak.

      Medium-bodied, dry wine with fruit and spice flavours dominating.

      Suitable for cellar ageing for at least 5+ years from vintage date.
      Winemaking [+]
      3 days of pre-ferment cold soak then 7 days of warm primary and secondary fermentation was completed on this wine. This was followed up with almost 1 month on skins before finally pressing straight to barrel.

      From here, the wine was matured in a combination of both French and American oak barrels for 14 months to develop the complexity of the wine and to mature and balance the structural tannins in the wine.
