Winemakers Notes The 2017 vintage was hot and dry and produced outstanding quality fruit from all varieties. The Cabernet Sauvignon was matured in new and old French oak for 18 months. This wine is a great example of Hunter Valley terroir with ripe fruit and sharp acid that will keep this wine ageing for many years.
