CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2018 – YARRA VALLEY
This wine is a gentle expression of the varietal – one for Robin to drink when he misses home.
2018 was a late ripening season which was fantastic for Cabernet. The result is a lovely, well balanced wine with very fine tannins.
Winemaking wise, fermentation at Yering Farm in one-tonne open fermenters using hand plunging, ten days post AF (alcoholic fermentation) maceration. No acid was needed thanks to the special soils at Rosehill Vineyard and our Vineyard Manager Bruce’s gentle approach to looking after the ecosystem. No fining was deemed necessary as the wine was clean and pure and was ready for bottling without filtration.
Harvested 21 March 2018.
Total production: 1,000 bottles
