What the Critics say
Deep garnet with a soft pinkish rim. Leafy and minty aroma, remarkably pure and primary for a five-year-old wine. Deep, leafy cassis and blackcurrant bud. Juicy, fresh and the tannins fine and rather gentle after five years, but still structuring the fruit well. A minty style that reminds me of Coonawarra but lighter on its feet.
Hand picked fruit was carefully selected and fermented naturally on skins in picking bins staying on skins for around four weeks. Gentle hand plunging of the ferment and minimal working has produced a cabernet sauvignon with vibrant fruit concentration and finely grained mouthcoating tannins. The Churinga vineyard cabernet sauvignon was first planted in 1994 and this wine was lovingly created from dry grown vines planted on rich loam and slate soil, which contributes to its fine tannin structure and vibrant fruit. Basket pressed, the wine was matured in 100% two year old French oak to ensure that the fruit is the defining feature.
