Aromas of dark blackberry fruits, hints of wild herbs and oak spice.

2018 was an outstanding year. Conditions were near perfect throughout the whole growing season. The year was warm without being too hot and the vines were able to ripen the fruit to the degree we desired without any stress. This means all aspects of fruit composition was good and acid was naturally maintained.
The Cabernet fruit was picked from our Billi’s vineyard in mid April in 2018. The wine was matured using old and new French oak. We blended in a small portion of Shiraz (15%) from our Upton Run vineyard which contributes ripe, juicy red berry flavours and fills out the mid palate.
