Cabernet Sauvignon vines are perfectly suited to the Coonawarra region, where a magical combination of the terra rossa soil and cool maritime climate produce very high quality grapes.

A vibrant red-purple colour with lifted violet and mint aromas. The palate has great length with balanced cassis fruit and dark chocolate.

2012 was considered an excellent vintage for Coonawarra. Mild days and cool nights were perfect conditions for producing great quality fruit.

Low rainfall and a cooler than average growing season produced ripe fruit full of flavour at 12.5° Baume. The grapes were crushed and fermented to dryness then pressed and matured in oak for 12 months before blending and bottling.
