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.

93 Wine Showcase Magazine

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
