Tasting Note

This is a wine of great presence, loaded with classic Cabernet Sauvignon characters of cassis, plums, cedar, red pepper and violets. Despite the depth and complexity of the fruit, the palate remains true to Cabernet form, providing a sleek mouthfeel framed by a long line of fine, chalky tannins. Powerful, aromatic, persistent and charming all at once. While this wine offers enough fruit to be enjoyed in youth, expect five to eight further years of careful cellaring to enhance its overall quality and enjoyment.

Online exclusive: this wine is available to buy on our website, and not in our Bath shop. If you wish to collect from our shop, simply order online and select the ‘free collection’ option at the checkout. Your wine will be available for you to collect within three business days.

Winemaking

A warm and dry spring and summer followed by further dry conditions throughout harvest meant a number of things. Firstly disease pressure was negligible, the vast majority of the fruit being very clean. Secondly yields were down. Finally ripening happened relatively quickly. From a quality perspective with regards to reds, these conditions produced wines of incredible colour and flavour. Dark, brooding wines with great volumes of fruit and layers of chewy, velvety tannin structure. Big, concentrated wines but beautifully balanced.

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and transferred to old American oak barrels to complete fermentation.The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. This wine does not undergo fining or filtration prior to bottling.
