2013 Decanter World Wine Awards - Commended Medal

The 2012 vintage shows classic dark berry fruit with a hint of dark chocolate on the nose. On the palate it is well balanced with rich, soft tannins.
It can be enjoyed now but will keep for up to 10 years in good storage conditions.
About The Harvest
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon was picked at optimum ripeness, with half of the fruit coming form Devon Valley and the balance from Villiera.
In The Cellar
The grapes were fully crushed and fermented in pumpover fermenters at ± 25° C. Full MLF occurred in tank before blending and racking to barrels. The wine was matured for just over a year in French oak barrels (including 25 % new) before final blending and bottling.
