From our well-known Three Pines vineyard. The grapes were hand-harvested and hand-sorted and fermented in open tanks with hand-punchdowns throughout. Matured for 20 months in small French oak, 70% new. A small amount of Petit Verdot (6%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Malbec (2%) was blended in to enhance the mouthfeel and perfume. An excellent vintage of Cabernet that will reward careful cellaring.
This wine has been a 2x Six Nations Wine Competition trophy winner; a 4x Platter 5-star wine; and a 2x Old Mutual Trophy winner.
