Region: Basket Range - Adelaide Hills, SA
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Organic farming, minimal sulphur
The Cabernet grows in the warmest aspect of the vineyard. That site gets a nice amount of afternoon sun. It is the first time we have also made a straight Cabernet Sauvignon and I think it shows how well-suited that variety can be for this part of the Hills, particularly in warmer years. Layered whole bunch and de-stemmed fruit in tank with 10 days maceration. 8 months in tank and seasoned French oak hogsheads.
