Fruit sourced exclusively from 1969 planted No 1 Cabernet Sauvignon. Blueberry and blackberry fruits interweaved with cassis and wafts of sage highlight the varietal characteristics. Cool climate Cabernet sauvignon with floral vibrancy, the palate is rich and round where berry fruits dominate, some classic leafy herbs add a savoury note and the natural acidity gives the wine life and longevity.
