Per Item: (750ml)

85.8% Cabernet Sauvignon & 14.2% Merlot.

Sourced from selected vineyards planted in 1990 in the classic shallow Coonawarra Terra-Rossa soil over limestone rock. Extensive fruit thinning was carried out prior to veraison to limit the yields and increase concentration and ripeness in the remaining berries. Harvest took place between 28th April and 5th May, yielding 3 tonnes/acre.Fermentation was in 8 tonne static stainless steel fermenters for 7 days, with an extended skin maceration of a further 25 days before racking into 100% new Troncais & Allier French barriques. Further development included 100% malo-lactic fermentation and a total of 20 months ageing in the new barriques.

Ready to Drink? Not really, like a top Bordeaux this wine is made to mature for years to come. However don't let that stop you from decanting it and trying now over a fine meal.

Food and Wine Matches: At its best with rare beef, duck, venison or boar. Divine with porterhouse braised in cabernet, or pan fried venison fillet with a cassis sauce.
