Stone Dwellers Cabernet Sauvignon

2018

Aroma
Intense blackberry, cassis and sweet raisins with hints of nutmeg and vanilla oak.

Palate
Juicy blackberry combined with licorice, chocolate and mouthcoating tannins to give a full and firm finish.

2018 was an excellent vintage. A mild to warm season, and moderate rainfall at the right times made for ideal growing conditions. With balanced canopies and fruit loads, the warm ripening season allowed balanced development of sugar, flavour and tannin.

The fruit was kept on skins for eight days of fermentation to achieve a balance or primary fruit and savoury tannin complexity. The wine was then matured (100%) in barrel in some of the finest French oak.
