    Vintage Conditions
    A mild summer with a long ripening period and lower yields resulted in good natural acidity and some of the best varietal flavours seen for many years.

    Winemaking
    Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vineyards were selected and monitored to select fruit that exhibited the ripe black fruit characters with balanced sugar ripeness. Fermentation at warmer temperatures of 20-22°C for five to seven days to optimise the extraction of desirable flavour and colour whilst retaining a soft tannin structure.
