A series of excellent vintages in the 1990's has enabled our Cabernet Sauvignon to win a string of gold medals in recent wine shows. This particular wine won a silver medal at the 1995 Melbourne Wine Show and placed in the top ten Cabernet’s from 170 entries. 1994 was a very dry and warm vintage allowing us to ripen the grapes fully. This ‘more-ish’ wine exhibits oodles of dark fruits, chocolates and mints on the nose, delivering powerful vibrant flavours of mulberries and chocolaty new French oak, finishing with a long warm and silky mouth feel.
Eminently drinkable, however it will richly reward those with patience.
This wine was made partly with barrel fermentation after being vinified in a rotary fermenter. This portion of the blend adds a rich, sweet integrated oak component and allows malolactic to occur in the barrel giving the wine a long finish.
