The average vine age in the wine is 20 years. The individual parcels of wine have been vinified separately and matured in a combination of new, 2 year old and 5 year old French oak to achieve the true benefits of oak maturation while avoiding oak dominance.
The 2014 vintage report for Coonawarra can be summarised as excellent. A hot, dry January developed into a moderate February with classic cool Coonawarra evenings continuing into a cool autumn. The dry extended ripening conditions were optimal for Cabernet Sauvignon and resulted in wines with high colour density, fruit concentration and tannin structure.
