This unique, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those wines that unfurls before you over the dinner table, changing and developing as you drink. Classical Cabernet aromas of chocolate, sage and blackcurrant berries open up to caraway seed, liquorice, leather and an earthy, mulberry palate. The long slow ripening season and free draining Terra Rossa soils of the Mount Benson growing region have helped shape this elegant and individual wine.

Tasting Notes
Deep magenta red. Blackcurrant, caraway seed, sage, liquorice, leather. Black fruits interwoven with brioche, chocolate and tiramisu. The wine will cellar well for 15 years, but is drinking very well now.
Vineyard Notes
Situated in the heart of the cool climate Mount Benson wine region, the Norfolk Rise Vineyard is planted on free draining “Terra Rossa” soils ideal for producing fruit of the highest quality. Within our Cabernet Sauvignon vines in March berry sampling begins and it is then that we begin to see the unique flavours expressed by each plot with variations dependant on the climate the season brings. The most complex, vibrant and expressive fruit is then chosen for this tiny parcel of our favourite Cabernet Sauvignon.
Winemaker Notes
After the selection of the best 4 tonne of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the vineyard, the fruit is crushed, and then fermented in stainless steel. Hand plunging, Bordeaux yeasts and extended time on skins allowed this wine to realise its full potential. The wine was matured in 30% new French oak barriques for +15 months prior to bottling to allow for a balance of oak and fruit and allow a unique fruit purity to be retained.
