AWARDS

SA Wine Index Score: 88 points
2015 Gold Wine Awards - Gold Medal

ageing : It can be enjoyed now but will keep for up to 10 years in good storage conditions.

in the vineyard : An important part of the Villiera range. It combines the natural elegance of Villiera soils with greater intensity from the soils of Devon Valley.

about the harvest: The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon was picked at optimum ripeness, with half of the fruit coming from Devon Valley and the balance from Villiera. The Cabernet Franc was picked earlier
and also comes from Devon Valley.

in the cellar : The grapes were fully crushed and fermented in pumpover fermenters at ± 25° C. Full MLF occurred in tank before blending and racking to barrels. The wine was matured for just over a year in French oak barrels (including 25 % new) before final blending and bottling.
