Winemaker's Notes

The exceptional 2018 vintage conditions guaranteed slow ripening and distinctive varietal character. We selected the parcels of fruit from our “Orchard Block” which was planted in 1967 using the famous low yielding “Reynell Clone” of Cabernet Sauvignon and our 30-year-old “Pig and Pony” vineyard.

The wine exhibits a bouquet of lifted blackcurrant, violets and mint, with bramble notes and hints of cedar oak. With the palate showing intense briary blackberry, red currant and spicy black cherry flavours, with hints of quince, red capsicum and Kalamata olive. This powerful yet elegant wine is framed by balanced tannins and subtle oak, finishing with great length.
