WINEMAKING  Grown in our Clare Valley estate vineyards, and selected from our 11.1 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon plantings, specifically from the Blights block near the Clare racecourse.  A consistent variety in the region for 2015 vintage, Cabernet Sauvignon is soft elegant style.  The richness of  the fruit in its natural state is protected and nurtured through minimal intervention in the winery.  Careful use of French oak provides a support and complexity to fruit richness and regional expression.    

AROMA  The dark inky colour introduces the concentrated blackcurrant fruits with savoury aromas of cedar and herbaceous notes.

PALATE  Regional typicity is shown in this elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with an underlying fragrant opulence of dark cassis.  The palate is soft with velvety tannins.  The intensity of this wine calls for a little breathing in the glass or decanter before being savoured with chargrilled lamb, slow cooked meals or hard matured cheeses.
