Grown on the Wildberry Estate vineyard this parcel of fruit enjoys one of the more sought-after addresses for Cabernet Sauvignon not only in Australia but also in a global sense.
Wilyabrup has rapidly gained a global reputation as one of the best places to grow Cabernet in the world and the Wildberry Vineyard with its free draining gravelly soils and north facing aspect deliver a unique viticultural environment in which to grow premium Cabernet Sauvignon.
Carefully selected fruit is delivered to the winery where it was crushed and destemmed to a static fermenter. Selected yeast is added and a controlled fermentation was conducted over a 17 day period.
During fermentation the wine is pumped over the skins twice a day to facilitate colour and tannin extraction. A period of post fermentation maceration on-skins has been employed for this batch to further ameliorate and soften the tannin profile of this wine.
Following fermentation the wine is matured in approximately 50% new and a selection of one and two year old French oak barriques. Following maturation the wine is assembled before a gentle filtration prior to bottling.
