Production
The fruit for this wine was sourced from our ‘No1’ Cabernet block (also known as the ‘Young Cabernet’) planted in 1971 on the Laira vineyard adjacent to Coonawarra township on classic Terra Rossa soil. On completion of fermentation, the wine was racked off lees for clarification and siphoned back into the same barrels for maturation. During the first six months of barrel maturation the wine was racked barrel to barrel by hand a further two times to achieve the required wine clarity and assist in wine development. Total maturation time in oak was 21 months.
