Willoughby Bridge Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon

Willoughby Bridge Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon



Vintage 2017

A warm continental climate, low yielding vines, ancient Cambrian soils and fastidious viticulture produced intensely flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with a clear regional and varietal character. Displaying a rich, deep red colour the wine has dark berry, briar and cassis aromas. Soft smooth and seamlessly integrated tannins.


The Vineyard

The fruit for this wine was grown in our Willoughby Bridge Vineyard at Colibinabbin, at the northern end of the Heathcote wine region. Willoughby Bridge Vineyard is planted on the renowned rich red earth, one of the oldest soil types in Australia.

The Winemaking

After handpicking, the separate fruit parcels were given a short pre-fermentation cold soak before being crushed and open fermented at warm temperatures. The wine was hand-plunged twice daily during its six-day ferment to extract the desired levels of colour and tannin. The wine was then matured for 14 months in fine grained, medium toast new and second year French oak barrels.
