“In 1995, North Block was planted with Cabernet and every year it seems to become more expressive.  Hand-pruning, selective hand-picking and gentle handling produces a wine that carries all the hallmarks of a classic Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon from our corner of Stevens Valley.”
STEVE JAMES, HEAD OF VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING

Vineyard Notes
A near-perfect growing season with a warm, dry spring and relatively light winds. Summer was nice and warm without excessive heat until a 80mm downpour mid-January; a timely watering for the reds, followed by some cooler weather. Fruit for our Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested during perfect autumnal conditions, with excellent concentration and structure.
