vintage

Our Redbrook Cabernet Sauvignon was picked in early April.

winemaking

The fruit was was cold soaked for 4-5 days. Wild fermentation then took place, which lasted 10 days. Extended skin contact was carried out for another 15 days until the desired texture, structure and style was achieved. Following pressing the wine was transferred into French oak hogsheads of which 18% were new with the balance being 2-4 years old. After 14 months in barrel, and being topped monthly, each individual barrel was tasted and assessed to determine which barrels were included in the final blend. The wine was then carefully blended and bottled, with extended maturation in bottle prior to release.

A super fine and brilliantly elegant Cabernet that captures the variety and the region to perfection. Beautifully seductive aroma of violets and red currant with some deep pluminess. The palate is dense and stylish with a fine balance of fruit oak and tannin. Has complex meaty characters merging with the vibrant blackcurrant fruit. Cellar: 15 years.
