Grape Variety: 60% Cabernet Franc, 28% Shiraz & 12% Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: South Australia
Vinification: The must was fermented in 1-tonne fermenters and Potter fermenter. After fermentation and maceration, the must was pressed off skins and racked to old 225L French oak barriques for the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Shiraz and to a new 4,300L foudre for the Cabernet Franc (racked to a 2 year old foudre after 12 months). The wine was racked off lees to tank and the final blend was egg-white fined before being bottled without filtration on the 3rd of December 2015.

Depth of the fruit flavours is matched by excellent tannin structure. Exemplary aromas of blackcurrant juice with scents of sage and five-spice then lead to a very structured mouthfeel and firm tannin on the finish. It is a great Australian cabernet with a nice French twist.
