Well balanced fruit weight with firm structured tannins.
The wine is a classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon showing intense cassis fruit flavours, with a long finish on the palate and soft tannins.
The wine was matured in French oak, adding to its structure, but not dominating the pure Coonawarra Cabernet fruit characters.
The fruit for the Cabernet Sauvignon is selected from old vine material from the Wilgha and Neilson's Block vineyards at the cooler, southern end of Coonawarra.
Located on the famous terra rossa soil, these vineyards were originally planted by Ian and Wendy Hollick in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Subsequent maturation in French oak (20% new) provides the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon with structure and presence on the palate.
