75% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Sangiovese
A wine for the long road, a true Gran Turismo.
Dark chocolate, sour cherry, fresh plum, bay leaf and leather spice, with background tomato leaf tannin, a lovely medium bodied structure and crunchy acidity.
Super Duper GT.
The fruit parcels was sourced from the stunning Ferguson Valley in Geographe, @ 220 metres, from 20 year old vines on deep gravelly loam slopes with a north westerly aspect. Careful canopy management allows even physiological ripening of the fruit and skins. Harvested cool. Left on skins for 8 days and fermented in open top fermenters before being matured in 1 and 2 year old French barriques for 12 months.
Gently crushed with a short pump over to manage the tannins. Unfined.
Barrel matured for 12 months in new and seasoned French oak.
