2018 Sandstone Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
The third release of our Single Vineyard wine from our Sandstone block on our Three Mile Lane vineyard.
Sandstone, a tiny two-hectare terra rossa block with exposed rocks, is home to some of our most exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon.
Carefully picked on the last day of harvest, April 18, the fruit was open fermented, basket pressed, and allowed to develop in new french oak barrels for 18 months.
The resulting powerfully structured wine is fresh and rich in dark fruit flavours, spices and tannins that are superbly balanced, refined and truly unique to this single vineyard.
96 points - Cowra Wine Show 2021
"It is full-bodied, full to overflowing with cassis / mulberry / plum fruit and a soft, plush texture." - James Halliday - 2020 - 94 points
"A lovely classic deep crimson Coonawarra cabernet with cassis fruit fragrances perfectly balanced by cedary oak and a tight, zesty and lively blue and dark fruit filled pallet." Winestate 2020 ★★★★★
