Tasting Notes


The 2016 vintage is extremely dense and dark. The nose is captivating with an initial abundance of dark fruits followed by the spicy, peppery and violet tones more typical of our vineyard. The palate is rich and decadent with a full body and great acidity. The tannins are noticeable but fine grained and create a wonderfully smooth finish and structure.

Winemaker's Notes


Fruit for this cabernet franc comes from the 7 acre 'Bordeaux block' at the back end of the estate, planted in nason series soil which is very rocky. After being hand-picked and sorted the fruit was de-stemmed and transferred to small lot fermetnation units. The majority of the lots were fermented naturally as is typical of our reserves. During the course of fermentation stems were added to the units and the wine was punched down six times daily.
