in the vineyard : The grapes are sourced from dry land vineyards in Darling and Robertson. Low crops ensure good flavour concentration and intense colour.

in the cellar : The wine has good fruit concentration, supported by firm structure true to the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Grapes are crushed and de-stemmed, in to stainless steel fermentors. After a five day cold soak, to extract colour the grapes are inoculated with yeasts and fermentation takes about 10 days, with temperatures not allowed to exceed 28°C. Pump overs are done three times per day to extract colour and tannin. Hereafter the grapes are pressed and the wine taken to barrel for malolactic fermentation and aged for 12 months in 2nd and 3rd fill French and American oak. The wine underwent a light egg white fining just before bottling.
