Growing Season

The 2018 vintage had perfect ripening conditions with dry, warm days paired with cooler nights resulting in beautifully ripe and healthy fruit.

Vineyard

Cabernet is usually the last of the varieties to bud, ripen and be picked here in the Hunter. Our vines were planted on our Saxonvale Vineyard on the Fordwich Sill in the late 1960’s and covers a small 3-hectare block. They produced the great Lindemans Saxonvale Cabernets of 1984, 85 and 86. We took over this vineyard in 2007 and are the proud custodians of these old, low yielding vines.  

Winemaking

The fruit is handpicked, and the juice is fermented at cool temperatures using aromatic yeasts. We mature the wine in a combination of new and old American and French barriques for 12 months, we select the best barrels based on freshness of aromatics and structural tannins to be bottled in limited quantities under our prestigious White Label.

Tasting Notes

Vivid purple in colour as a young wine and displaying intense dark fruit aromas. The palate is rich and earthy with blackcurrant, spiced fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla bean and a touch of Chinese five-spice. The tannins are firm and structured, and the finish is long and lingering.

Food Match

Venison backstrap with beetroot puree and burnt shallots
