Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The total production of this wine represents 5% of the total Cabernet Sauvignon harvest from 2017. For us it is too simplistic to use the often used phrase “best barrel selection from the vintage” when trying to describe how this Reserve wine has been created. Rather, after 20 vintages we are starting to get a better understanding as to where the best fruit from our 3628 Cabernet Sauvignon vines consistently is sourced. We now understand that the leaner, gravelly soils at the highest elevation point of the vineyard produces fruit with extra varietal dimension and weight, which can handle further oak treatment.
Winemaker Notes
The fermentation with this wine follows traditional Bordeaux techniques using a combination of open fermenters for freshness and closed fermenters with extended skin contact for colour stability. The ferments were hand plunged to ensure only the softest tannins are extracted. The wine is unfined and essentially unfiltered only going through a coarse filter on the bottling line.
