Blueberry and brambly fruit on the nose, with dried mint and aromatic woody herbs, earthy notes and background cedary oak. Varietal palate showing dark berry fruits along with woody herbs and some mint. Beautiful purple and red hues representative of a classic Cabernet Sauvignon wine with fine tannin structure and lingering flavours.
All fruit for our White Label reds comes from a stunning 64 acre vineyard, located in the southern foothills of the McLaren Vale region. Its unique position, just 2km away from the coast of the Gulf St Vincent, allows the vines to benefit from a maritime climate with cooling afternoon sea breezes coming in from the south west. These breezes prevent our fruit from over-ripening so that we are able to produce elegant wines that balance rich primary fruit flavours with the characteristic earthiness and minerality associated with the region.
Harvested when flavours ripened, then fermented on skins for a period of 7 days. Part matured in French Oak barrels for a period of 18 months to give some oak influence and soften tannins and remainder matured in stainless steel tanks to maintain freshness. After maturation the final blend was put together and comprised wines sourced from a few different locations on the Estate vineyard to create a complex yet balanced Cabernet Sauvignon.
