Tasting Notes
The 2014 vintage shows classic dark berry fruit with a hint of dark chocolate and violets on the nose. On the palate it is well balanced with rich, soft tannins.

Blend Information
94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc
In The Vineyard
An important part of the Villiera range - combines the natural elegance of Villiera soils with greater intensity from the soils of Devon Valley.
About The Harvest
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon was picked at optimum ripeness, with half of the fruit coming from Devon Valley and the balance from Villiera. The Cabernet Franc was picked earlier and also comes from Devon Valley.
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.
