Behind Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon

Peter Gago

“Grange of Cabernet? Indeed, the 2012 vintage provides more evidence to support this proposition.”

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

Lower than average winter rainfall was experienced across each region. Variable conditions continued through the period from October to December, merging into a mild summer, with a few short periods of elevated heat. Areas including the Coonawarra experienced cooler temperatures for flowering ahead of superior ripening conditions, with lower yields contributing to an earlier start to harvest. Across each region, fruit was picked in optimal condition. Smaller berry and bunch sizes were noticeable in most regions. Coupled with favourable weather conditions, great results were delivered for traditional quality markers – colour, tannin profile, fruit concentration and flavour depth.
