Wine Making

Vinification: Combination of old & new American & French oak for 24 months

Vintage Conditions: Good winter rainfall meant near full soil moisture profiles at budburst. Moderate rain during early spring encouraged good shoot growth, with a quick and even flowering resulting in excellent fruit set. Mild & dry conditions, without any significant extremes continued throughout the growing season. Production levels were excellent, above long term averages and the mild & slow ripening conditions enabled strong varietal character to develop. Vintage was dry and the weather stable so fruit was harvested, at optimal flavour development and high natural acidity. A “goldilocks” vintage.

Vine Clone: LC14

Harvest Date: 1 May 2021

The palate is equally satisfying, with excellent concentration and a smooth, flowing mouthfeel. The tannins are seamlessly infused, creating a sturdy yet harmonious structure that leads to a persistent and engaging finish.”- Sam Kim January 2024

92 Vinous – “There is an attractive detail to be found in this 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Selection as it radiates with finely tuned cassis, gravel and violet aromas. Hearty flavours follow with a rich seam of firm tannins in support. A strong finish suggests significant aging potential over the next decade and beyond.” -Angus Hughson July 2023

91 Halliday- “Matured in a combination of old and new American and French oak for 24 months. A deep core of blackberries, raw cocoa pods and cardamom. Rosemary, oregano and bay leaf. The sweet vanillin oak just sits on top of the fruit but does add plenty of richness and a luxurious mouthfeel.”- Shanteh Wale February 2024
