Cabernet Sauvignon, Adelaide Hills, Murdoch Hill
Fresh, mid-weight in style. Balance is a key feature. Fresh and fruity but with underlying complexity. A great wine that will develop well mid term. The Murdoch Hill Cabernet vines are entering their prime years. At 15 years old their fruit has depth of flavour and character. Mulberries, dark fruits and blackcurrant leaf supported by fine tannins.

Vinification: The vines for the Murdoch Hill Cabernet Sauvignon are grown at 380 metres a.s.l. Whole bunches were hand harvested and de-stemmed into open fermenters. Gentle hand plunging during fermentation enables gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. Extended maceration on skins for 2-4 weeks has built this wine, giving layers to the palate and a soft tannin profile. The wine was matured in fine French barriques with 25% new for 10 months before bottling.
