The 2010 harvest was quite unusual in that it ripened very

late after a relatively cool spring and summer. Late harvest

rains further delayed the ripening but had little or no negative

impact on the grapes. It did, however, lead to an interesting

outcome. The Cabernet Sauvignon became very ‘fruit’

ripe with lower than normal sugar levels. This allows the

wine to be fully mature at slightly lower alcohols, rendering

the wines more ‘user-friendly’.

This wine comprises seven different Cabernet blocks with

one in particular, Block 2B, of outstanding quality. This special

component was left on its skins well after the completion

of the primary ferment. A process known as extended maceration.

In fact, the ferment was not pressed until February of

2011, virtually unheard of in modern winemaking techniques.

The result is a completely different mouth - feel and texture.

 

The final blend has all the hallmarks of classic Cabernet. It

has ripe blackcurrant fruit and consists of ever emerging

layers of complexity. The wine’s texture is of important note,

as is the presence of balancing ne, ripe tannins. New French

oak completes the wine’s structure, offering the perfect physical

support for the lingering fruit flavors.
