Tasting Notes
Herbal and fruity. Aromas and flavours of violets, black tea, menthol, vanilla, coffee, strawberries, blackberries and tobacco. The finish is well-balanced with its acidity and smooth tannins.
Winemaker Notes
The Strewn Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard comprises two distinct soil types – clay and sandy. The sandy soil allows for more aromatic wines with greater elegance on the palate. Hand-harvested fruit was fermented in small stainless steel bins to increase the extraction of fruit flavours. Matured in three French Oak and one American Oak barrels for 20 months then bottled with minimal treatment to retain the true fruit qualities. Bottles were laid down prior to release to allow greater integration and development of the wine.
