Single Vineyard Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon from specially selected rows of our Block 3 vineyard planted in 1994 by father and son vignerons Jim and Tim Kidman. Jim drove the old David Brown tractor and Tim was sitting in the planter bouncing along behind trying to plant all the vines with the right spacing. Today the spacing looks just fine. For a quarter of a century the Cabernet Sauvignon vines have stood in their place on the Terra Rossa soil. Braving the winter cold and rain only to burst into life each spring with green shoots and tiny bunches that slowly turn with the summer warmth into ripe dark flavoursome berries in late autumn.
Made by Phil Lehmann and his team in open fermenters then pressed into one third new French oak hogsheads for secondary fermentation and further barrel maturation. Rich and full flavoured Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon that can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to a couple of decades or more.
Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 displays an intensely deep rich purple colour with lifted aromas of cassis and spice leading to a generous mid palate of blackberries, mocha and just a trace of Coonawarra mint.Fully ripened fine grained tannins lend great structure and balance with a lengthy finish. Maturation in one third new French oak barrels gives subtle complexity and depth of flavour in the special way that only time in barrel can.
