  • Tasting Note: Single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon with a pungent, punchy nose of balsamic, cloves and wild herbs, followed by blackcurrant and a twist of orange peel in the mouth.
  • Food Matching: A full bodied wine that serves as a great accompaniment to rib of beef or slow cooked shin.
  • Production Method: This exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon has a powerful nose of fresh bay and clove, leading to a full bodied palate that opens with juicy blackcurrant, hints orange peel and warming oak.
  • Vineyard: This wine has been produced entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon variety grapes grown on a limestone-rich terroir blessed with its own microclimate.
  • Vinification: After sorting, the grapes were fermented at low temperature with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks for around 1 to 3 weeks; during this time, gentle extraction was performed by delestage and remontage. After a spontaneous malolactic fermentation in tank, a unique system devised by Pascal Delbeck was used to move the wine to "IFO" steel mini-vats, allowing pump-free racking without moving the tanks. This was followed by 19 months in oak barricas of 225L.
  • Awards and Press News: Classic Cabernet; attractive plum, cedar, tobacco and liquorice notes. Savoury tannins with dark chocolate and a long, dry, herbal finish.
