Description

1VITICULTURE

Cabernet Sauvignon is a varietal that is a challenge to attempt in Hawkes Bay consistently year after year but with the right sites and meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard and winery the work put in is truly worth it. The grapes for this wine were sourced from low yielding vines growing in gravel vineyard sites, ideally suited to Cabernet. A small parcel of Merlot from heavier soil was blended to add depth to the mid palate and balance the wine. Shoot thinning, leaf removal and fruit thinning throughout the season, followed by hand picking ensures only the finest quality grapes.

WINEMAKING

A combination of old and new world winemaking techniques ensures the dark fruits dominate and produce soft supple wines with core acidity, structure and tannin. Aging for 20 months in new and older French oak barrels has added structure and depth while ensuring the varietal characters remain true. Unfined and unfiltered, natural sedimentation may occur.
