Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background - only 128 cases produced

The grapes for this wine were grown on Glengrove Vineyard at 330 metres altitude on the border of McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.

The 2017 season started with a wet Spring. Summer and Autumn were mostly cool, leading to the latest vintage for several years,the grapes being picked on 22nd March.

The fruit was hand plunged, basket pressed and matured in one third new and two thirds 1- and 2-year-old French oak barrels for 18 months.

Colour
Medium red with a garnet edge.

Nose
Dark and red berries. Subtle oak spice. Cedary complexity beginning to build in bottle.

Structure / Palate
Medium bodied. Red fruit flavours more apparent. Elegantly structured, with fine tannin balance.

The cooler season has yielded a Cabernet with more finesse than you typically find in “big” years from McLaren Vale. This has enhanced the wine’s immediate drinking pleasure and its flexibility to suit just about any foods or occasions.
Enjoy it now and through 2023.
