Paul Bosc and Amélie Boury's Winemaker's Notes
The grape bunches for this Cabernet Sauvignon were hand-sorted right in the vineyard and only high quality bunches made the grade. This hands-on approach continued in the cellar with ten months of aging in French oak barrels and regular stirring of the lees. The wine is vibrant with mouth-watering black cherry, dark chocolate and warm spice notes wrapped in toasty vanilla. Classic old world style Cab Sauv. It’s ready to drink now but will continue to evolve in the bottle over the next few years.
Miguel Fontalvo's vineyard manager's Notes
The grapes for this wine were grown exclusively in our vineyards. We believe we are custodians of the land and have been practising sustainable agriculture right from the beginning. We made this Cabernet Sauvignon by selecting grapes from more than one of our vineyards. The tradition of sourcing grapes from different vineyards adds character and dimension to wine, and this is a fine example. Our vineyards thrived by very carefully managing the yield from each vine. The result was fully mature, ripe grapes that were brimming with flavour.
