Winemaking   2016 Clare vintage high in quality and slightly higher in yields.   A stress free 2015 winter allowed the vines to store extra nutrients for potentially better crops. 

Spring saw good rains and little frost, and advanced growing which lead to early harvest time with the right mix of vine stress without disease pressure.

With just over 11 hectaresof Cabernet Sauvignon, our estate grown fruit shone in these conditions for a richness and concentration of flavour.

Placed in older French barrels, and bottled with minimal filtration, the result is a true expression of Cabernet from the Clare region.  


Colour   Deep red currant colour.

Nose   Briar blackcurrants, ripe plums and chocolate.

Palate   The central palate is black currant cassis with creamy oak and   cedar.  Elegant in structure, the cherry finish is savoury and soft.
