COLOUR
Vibrant deep purple.

NOSE
Perfumed blue fruits, cassis, undergrowth and bay leaf.

PALATE
Intense and elegant palate of ripe blackberry, dark mint chocolate, clove and garden
herbs. Layered and generous mouthfeel with supportive fine tannin and gentle acidity
leading to a long finish.

WINEMAKING
A combination of hand and machine picked parcels from estate-grown Block 2 and small parcels of another northern Frankland Cabernet fermented separately. Partially crushed with the inclusion of some whole berry for gentle tannin extraction and to provide lifted perfume. Cold soaked, plunged and pumped over through the peak of fermentation. The parcels were basket pressed and spent 10 months in French oak (20% new). Barrel selected and blended before bottling in early February.

FOOD PAIRING
Flame grilled grass-fed scotch fillet and oven-roasted root vegetables.

VINTAGE NOTES
A challenging growing season across Frankland resulted in significantly lower yields
across all varieties. This coupled with lower than average winter and spring rains
resulted in grapes with concentrated flavours and intensity. Mild summer temperatures
saw slow even ripening and high-quality fruit harvested a few weeks later than average.
