Tasting notes

A small parcel of fruit from old vines was hand-picked for our Cabernet in 2014. Whole bunches were selectively picked, crushed and left on skins for seven days. The wine was aged for 18 months in a combination of 35% new and old French oak barrels. Drink now as a young, assertive Cabernet showing layers of flavour including blackcurrant, cassis, plum, mint, cedary oak and fine-grained, chewy tannins, or cellar for 20 + years.
