2021 High Distinction
58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Syrah.
Australia's iconic blend that has largely been overlooked in Victoria. Reunited at last. Leafy, Ribena, cool climate Cabernet aromatics with a fist bump of spicy Syrah. Luncheon Claret. Decant to impress. Cabernet and Syrah coming off the same vineyard in Kangaroo Ground - picked in early April. Really good looking Cabernet. Cabernet all de-stemmed and Syrah mainly de-stemmed. Fermented separately but made in a similar way. Wild ferment, some punchdowns early on for the Cabernet but otherwise letting them both hang out til dryness for about two weeks. Gravity fill to old barrels.
