The wine was blended from a selection of the best batches of Cabernet Sauvignon grown on their Leston vineyard, located in the Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River.
Barrel maturation for 18 months in 40% new and 60% older, French oak barriques ensures the thorough integration of oak and grape tannins.
“”Fermented in stainless steel, select parcels remaining on skins post fermentation, others pressed at dryness, each batch matured seperately in French barriques (40% new) for 18 months. Very good red-purple; as vibrant and pure as the best Margaret River cabernets, casses fruit to the fore, French oak synergestic, tannins and echoes of bayleaf/olive simply reaffirming the nigh-on perfect varietal expression.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
