This varietal Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent example of what complexities our famous ‘Terra Rossa’’ soils can impart into our wines. Aromas of dark berry fruit, mint, cassis, bramble and spices mingle with the approachable body and fine, soft chocolate and vanilla tannins on the finish. This Cabernet can be enjoyed now with a Sunday roast lamb and roasted Mediterranean vegetables and will continue to improve over the next decade.

Tasting Notes
Deep purple red with a bright magenta hue. Aromatic cassis and blackberry fruit with a touch of mint, spices, bramble and dark chocolate. Dense nicely ripened forest berry fruit with medium weight and extract. The wine finishes gently with integrated, creamy oak and soft, lingering chalky tannins. Likely lifespan 2020+
Vineyard Notes
Situated in the heart of the cool climate Mount Benson region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on 180 hectares of undulating coastal hills. Within 5 kilometres of the ocean at 37 degrees south of the equator, our Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on near perfect “Terra Rossa” soils, providing an ideal level of nutrient and water retention.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were selectively harvested from our vineyards from mid-March to early April. The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards were low yielding and monitored daily for ripeness leading up to harvest. A clean growing season and maritime breezes allowed for grapes of the highest quality to be picked. The grapes were then de-stemmed, crushed and transferred to fermentation tanks where the wine was held on skins for a few days post ferment to increase aroma intensity. Following pressing, the wine was racked into French oak barriques for approximately 16 months. Individual barrels were selected for the final blend and a small parcel of Cabernet Franc was included for added complexity.
