Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Great Southern, Western Australia
The wine is 100% cabernet sauvignon (Houghton clones), the fruit picked and sorted in April 2013. It was cold soaked in a small fermenter for six weeks before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration. Sixty percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques for seventeen months. The balance went to one year old (30%) and two year old (10%) Bordeaux barriques (for the same period). The wine was then bottle aged for a further twelve months before release.
