This is a wine that has to be seen to be believed - better yet enjoyed in good company. This grapes come from a tiny parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon that was planted in the late 1980’s, fifty metres to the south of the Bobar Chardonnay vines. Facing east and tucked hard into the base of the Christmas Hills, it is protected and hidden with a fertile ‘garden of Eden’ energy. The wines from these mature vines have an ease, balance and poise, possessing depth and intensity without weight or undue effort. The freshly harvested and uncrushed bunches of Cabernet Sauvignon were placed directly into small open fermenters for 3 weeks carbonic maceration. After pressing the ferments were allowed to finish in old oak casks before maturation during winter and spring. It was racked and bottled without the addition of sulphur dioxide in December 2021. Alcohol – 11.5% Titratable acidity – 6.1g/L pH – 3.50 Total sulphur dioxide – 32mg/L Residual sugar – 0.11g/L Volatile acidity – 0.68g/L
