Winemaking The 2010 growing season was cool and quite wet, but dried out before vintage. We picked the Cabernet fruit in beautiful cool weather on the 31st of March. The grapes were transported to our winery in the Piccadilly Valley before destemming and gently crushing into Potter heading-down board fermenters. Once per day the fermenting juice was drained to another tank, and the juice then pumped back over the skins, gently helping extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. At sugar dryness, the wine was drained off and the skins pressed. The blended wine was then transferred to older French oak barriques, and inoculated with malo-lactic bacteria. The wine was racked out of barrel four times during its 22 months in oak, which helped the wine clarify and allowed us to check its aging progress.
Colour Deep ruby red with opaque tinges.
Aroma Aromas of black currants, liquorice cassis and cedar are complemented by a lovely hint of mint
Palate The palate is big and rich, but also has elegance. Ripe, soft sandy tannins contribute to a generous textural mouth feel
Cellaring Drinking well now or over the next 3 years.
