The Wine: 

Fruit for this wine was grown in two different locations, the first is Wilybrook on the banks of the Wilyabrup river. A vineyard managed by LS. The second is Jolliffe vineyard, the barrels that didn’t make the single vineyard wine were blent into this wine (they weren’t bad they just were not the best of the best)

2021 was wet with periods of summer rain and a cooler weather leading to Cabernet of lighter body and elegant structure.

Machine harvested directly to 1T open fermenters. Hand plunged 2 or 3 times a day, to extract tannin and structure, for 2 weeks, then left for a further 2-week extended maceration.

This wine has a beautiful, elegant flavour spectrum with cola nut, cassis, cherry, clove, and baking spice all present on the nose and palate with a touch of graphite and a chewy tannin profile gives a long, soft finish.

Drink now or age for the next 5-8 years
