The fruit for the Hedonist Cabernet is grown biodynamically on our own vineyard situated in the Willunga foothills, McLaren Vale. Warm Summer days are cooled by evening sea breezes from St Vincent’s Gulf, which lies a close proximity to the West. The soil is rich loam over clay with patches of underlying limestone, giving the wine a rich and fullness of pallet.
Harvested in two batches late March/early April, the parcels were fermented separately – for 12 days and 33 days respectively. Once malolactic fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks, the batches were racked into 50% French Oak foudre (2-year-old) and 50% seasoned French oak hogs heads for 18 months for maturation.
Deep ruby red
Blackcurrant, a touch of dried herbs and a hint of black truffle.
An abundance of blackcurrant and cassis carry the palate, some earthy notes and spice woven in. Firm, lengthing tannins finish it off nicely.
