Cabernet Sauvignon () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2020 and older
The wine displays Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrant fruit on the nose as well as having a fresh minty, herbaceous ness backed by mocha vanilla. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show great ageing potential. Only 4000 bottles produced.
This vintage was picked at slightly lower sugars than previous vintages due to this being 3rd year of drought and the vines struggled. To prevent stress on the vines and grapes, picking was done 7-10 days earlier than normal. This resulted in a fresher style of GS for the 2018 vintage
