This Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in the Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River. The canopy management is a vertical shoot position trellis with a north south facing aspect. The clonal selection is the popular Houghton selection Cabernet Sauvignon.
Soil types are typically sandy loam over free draining lateritic sub soils. 2021 is typified by a cool and mild growing season which has culminated in wines of delicacy and poise.
The fruit was picked on the 11th April showing excellent flavours and tannin maturity. Lightly crushed fruit was then placed to a static fermenter for a further 13 days of fermentation with daily pump overs to ensure a moderate fermentation temperature and extraction of tannin.
Once the desirable amount of flavour and tannin was evident the wine was pressed before being matured in seasoned French oak for a following 9 months before bottling.
