Vintage Conditions

For the 2021 vintage, that magic has been delivered in wines with bright fruit and subtle power, lovely rounded tannins in the reds and ripe fruit acids in the whites. 2021 was a very cool year and one of the wettest on record for Gundagai. It saw fruit yield down by around 30% mainly due to the drought condition from the previous few years and disease pressure that comes with a wet year.

Winemaking Notes

The fruit was harvested and immediately transported to the winery. Primary fermentation took place in a stainless steel fermenter with pump overs taking place twice a day. At the end of fermentation, the wine was pressed off skins and put to oak to undergo maturation for 12 months before being blended, filtered and bottled.

Tasting notes

Colour of youthful magenta, aroma predominantly blackberry . Medium bodied palate flooded with variants of ripe red fruits and subtle spicy French oak, while still maintaining the fine-tannin composition that is synonymous with classic Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

Food pairing notes

Cabernet Sauvignon is best paired with nearly all red meat, including prime rib, New York strip and filet mignon. Also try lamb or pepper- crusted ahi tuna. The wine is best enjoyed with food and is great in sauces or reductions.
