Only select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, grown on both red and black soils over limestone on the Davey Estate vineyard, qualify for this wine. Partial cold soaking prior to fermentation maximises the fragrance of the finished wine. Extended fermentation time on skins helps to capture the essence of the fruit and gives a silky but firm tannin finish. Maturation for an average of 15 months in 1 – 6 year old fine-grained French oak hogsheads, softens, enhances and integrates the fruit and structural components of the wine.
