The Gorge Cabernet Block is one of the jewels of our estate vineyard. Gravelly soils over ancient rocks produces a wonderfully structured wine that speaks intimately of the site where it was grown.

Winemaking Notes

Gentle and patient winemaking is preferred to ensure that the wine expresses the unique site characters. The hand harvested grapes were gently crushed, fermented in an open fermenter and hand plunged to facilitate subtle tannin extraction.
After 13 days on skins the fermenter was basket pressed and the free run and pressing fractions were combined. The wine was then aged for 20 months in 100% tight grained French oak. The proportion of new oak was kept low to encourage the continued expression of the characters that are exclusive to the vineyard site. There were no additions of any fining agents or tannins and the wine was not filtered prior to bottling. The wine was aged in bottle 6 months prior to release.
