FRUIT SOURCE
Grown on our Estate at Whistler Wines, Seppeltsfield Road, Marananga, Barossa Valley. Clone D3V14 planted in 1997 on a lovely south-east facing slope with lots of broken quartz in the soil.

WINE MAKING
Traditional open fermentation in old concrete fermenters using wild yeast, foot stomping and gentle basket pressing before going to oak. This wine was matured in 20% new French oak hogsheads along with 80% older French and American oak for 20 months before blending and bottling with no fining and no filtration.

THE WINE
Very deep red colour in the glass. This is a typical Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon with loads of dark fruit and dried herbs on the nose, with hints of dark peppermint chocolate. The palate is full of soft dark fruits and tight tannins which indicates that this wine has a long life ahead.

TECHNICAL DATA
Alcohol: 13.5% pH: 3.56 T.A.: 7.27 g/l

RECOMMENDED CELLARING
Drinking wonderfully now, but will cellar well until 2028.
