In 2007 we took over the old Saxonvale Vineyards planted on the Fordwich Sill of Broke Fordwich. These vines were planted in 1971 and have produced the great Saxonvale Cabernets of 1984, 85 and 86.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine explodes out of the glass with intense dark fruit aromas with an edge of vanillin and Chinese 5-spice. The palate is rich and earthy with young vibrant tannins that will smooth out given a bit of time.
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 vintage brought a bit of rain but held off at the right time, and the thick skin of this variety enabled us to pick at optimum phenolic ripeness. After cool fermentation using aromatic yeast the wine was placed into new American oak Hogsheads. It stayed in these for eight months prior to minimalist filtration.
Food Pairing Notes
Roast duck, dePuy lentils, balsamic glazed pearl onions & carrot puree
