Are you Game? 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaking is a game of quick wit, experience and endurance. Each year Mother Nature challenges us to a match and each year we respond; moving deftly with the lightest touch. 

As seasoned contenders, we know how to play the game. The resulting blend is captivating; light on it’s feet yet full of character and perfect with food. Are you game? 

This wine is a deep red with some youthful purple hues. Aromas of blackberry and blueberry meld with dark chocolate and savoury notes of oak spice. The palate is medium bodied with dusty tannins that give great structure and a tight finish. Flavours of juicy black currant, liquorice and mixed herbs.

Wine Making

2017 was one of the coldest vintages for many years. These slow ripening conditions were excellent for Cabernet which was not picked until Mid May. Our very last block of Cabernet was actually not picked until June! The long hang time on the vine has produced an elegant cabernet with great varietal definition.
