2005 Cabernet Sauvignon
Our best year for this variety, with some 330 cases of wine produced. The fruit was taken to Kellybrook winery where Phil Kelly worked his magic to make this wine for us.
After fermentation and racking the wine was matured in French oak barriques for twelve months prior to bottling. The high alcohol level and good acidity have given us a wine that will cellar for many years. Remarkably, it also drinks well now.
We closed these bottles with Stelvin screw caps, guaranteeing that the wine will never be ‘corked’.
