2015 Old Block V9 Cabernet Sauvignon
Lifted aromas of rich, dark spicy berry fruit with hints of bay leaf, dark chocolate and cedar.
The palate displays sweet red and dark berry fruit with earthy gravelly notes and subtle hints of bayleaf and tobacco adding a savoury element. The wine is rich and smooth with great length, structure and balance, supported by fine silky tannins and seamlessly integrated French oak.
Succulent slow-cooked red meats would be ideal. A crumbly aged Cheddar a crusty baguette is another valid option.
Cellar Potential20 YearsWinemaking NotesThis wine is a pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from our Old Block V9, which was planted in 1978. The low yields and warm ripening period afforded by the 2015 vintage has produced a wine with great richness and concentration. This elegant wine reflects a true sense of place.
