This single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was carefully managed to produce extremely small volumes of exceptionally concentrated grapes. The bunches were harvested by hand at full ripeness, before being hand-sorted and cold macerated for 8 days. Aged in 100% new French oak barriques for a total of 32 months, where the wine underwent a spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
Dark cherry, blackberry, oak and toast abound on the nose. The subtle oak component follows from the nose to the palate, where there is a lovely balance between concentration, flesh, acidity and firm tannins. The finish is long, clean and savoury, begging to be paired with a succulent meat dish.
