Our Estate range of wines have proven to be a huge hit! We take the best parcels of each variety and individually handle them to allow the true personalities of each block to be preserved. Further selection of these parcels can be allocated to the Reserve program so the finished wines have considerable depth and style.
This wine has the benefit of having our most prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon blocks as part of its blend. Blocks 4C and 4D form 33% of this wine. These blocks are normally designated for our Reserve Cabernets but were chosen for our Estate wine this vintage.
The fruit was harvested over a period of 16 days commencing in October 2017, with dates depending on clonal and site differences to ensure all components are at their peak. Following fermentation, the wine was transferred to second use French and Hybrid oak barrels for 15 months on average before blending and preparation for bottling.
With aromas of Maraschino cherries and a tannic mouthfeel with notes of chocolate, cherries, leather, and tobacco, this wine pairs with rich red meats, like ribeye, prime rib, and roast beef.
