Expressive aromas over flow the glass with strawberry, rubarb and wild cherry and raspberry.
On the palate this wine displays a silky texture that glides across the mouth seamlessly intertwining flavors of berries and dark cherry blossom. This is a crisp and dry rose, low in alcohol, with a medium body and high fruit flavors, providing depth and fruity complexity on the finish.
2015 was another near-perfect vintage, perhaps surpassing the past 3 years, yielding a tiny crop of smaller-berried fruit that produced a intense wine, and as a vintage should really stand out. Compared to last year, 2015 produced super small berries, which means a higher ratio of skins to juice, leading to higher levels of color and concentration. We had one heat spike in late June/early July, and the weather was generally dry, warm even and consistent throughout the season. We picked the Cabernet under the most ideal conditions in late September, and expect 2015 will turn out to be yet another new pinnacle for our Estate - back to back stellar vintages from 2012 to 2015 in our opinion, with 2015 having a bit of an edge at the moment.
