Vintage

This wine has been crafted utilising fruit sourced from three separate blocks on the estate: Blocks 3 and 4 of premium 25-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines; and Block 5 Merlot planted in 1987. A small amount of Cabernet and Malbec from the neighbouring property of Abbey Vale features in the 2014 blend.

Winemaking

All of the constituent vineyard parcels were fermented separately for this wine using a variety of techniques. These wines were matured for 18 months in 30% new and 70% seasoned French oak barriques.
