Country: Australia, Barossa Valley
Tasting Notes: Above-average winter and early spring rainfall offered the vines in South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Late spring and summer were dry and warm setting signifi cant heat records. Warm weather prevailed during summer and throughout veraison, allowing grapes to develop evenly and with good flavour intensity. These warm conditions came to an abrupt halt in the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale in mid-February with significant rainfall allowing for long, slow and optimal ripening of the fruit. Wrattonbully had a warm and generally dry ripening end to the season allowing the development of strong varietal flavours.
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
