Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The most elevated section of our certified organic single vineyard site has a significant gravel component in the soils, which is crucial for the consistent production of premium cabernet sauvignon fruit. The 2018 cabernet was harvested at 2.02 tonnes to the acre, and the vine age at the time of harvest was 24 years. The cabernet vines were hand pruned, hand leaf plucked (to ensure good sunlight into the canopy) and hand harvested.
Production
There were 815 cases of 2018 cabernet sauvignon bottled, versus an average of 688 cases.
