2017 was a cold and challenging season. As a robust variety our Cabernet enjoyed the cool conditions. The long hang time ensured a good slow development of flavour with slow building sugar levels. This meant we could keep the alcohol below 14% and still have lovely ripe flavours. The fruit was picked from our Billi’s vineyard in the last week of April, 2017.

The wine was matured using new French (70%) and American (30%) oak. We blended in a small portion of Merlot (6%) from the same vineyard which contributes ripe, juicy plum flavours and fills out the mid palate.
