Harvested on the 22nd March 2016, fruit for our First Growth was fermented in a 9T closed-static-fermenter for 36 days (fermentation lasting 10 days before the parcels were topped and sealed). This extended maceration encourages tannin structure and increases ageing potential. After time on skins, the wine was pressed to a prestigious selection of new Chateau Barriques, and Hogsheads sourced from renowned Bordeaux cooperages Seguin Moreau and Taransaud. The wine was then matured in oak for 18 months to create fine-grained tannins and produce a tightly structured wine with the potential to improve with correct cellaring in excess of 20 years.

Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
