Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into our Yarra Yering half-tonne open fermenters. Hand plunged twice daily until fermentation is complete, some extended time on skins until tannins soften before pressing for gentle tannin extraction. Gravity filled to 2 French oak Bordeaux shaped barrels, one new and one two year old for 18 months completing malolactic fermentation in the cool underground cellars.

Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)

Vines: Fruit sourced from the 1969 planted No.1 Cabernet Sauvignon, exclusively from the south west corner following a gravel band across the block.

Cellaring: This is one for the cellar to evolve for a further 20+ years under suitable conditions. 

Analysis: 13.5 % ALC
