The impressive 2016 vintage (5*) is the first since 2011. From hand-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, estate-grown in the Gimblett Gravels, it was matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (50 per cent new). Densely coloured, it is a sturdy, youthful red, sweet-fruited, with highly concentrated, pure blackcurrant-like flavours, very finely structured and set for the long haul. Open 2023+.
