Origin: Multi-regional blend, South Australia.
Maturation: 12 months in French and American oak, 10% new oak (French)
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon.
Above-average winter and spring rainfall offered the vines across South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Cool days and cooler nights slowed vine growth in early spring with temperatures warming in October. Late flowering and veraison delayed harvest by a few weeks. Weather conditions during ripening were generally dry with conditions favouring fully ripened grapes with well-developed colours and flavours.
The first vintage was in 2013.
