Winemaking Notes:
The fruit selected for this wine comes from four vineyard blocks to the south of the McLaren Vale township. The oldest of the vines, planted in 1968 on our winery block, provides the backbone of the blend. Some oak fermentation has been used to enhance the aroma of the wine. Our philosophy is to augment, rather than dominate, the fruit with oak and as a result 25% of the oak is new or one year old, with the remaining being used in the previous blends.

Background Information:
Named after the picker’s hut at the front of the property, our Hut Block vineyards are planted on sand and black clay loam soils over a substructure of clay. We think that the intensity of our Cabernet Sauvignon can be attributed to these soils, while the mild maritime climate of McLaren Vale, in which cool evening and night breezes from the gully winds moderate the day time temperatures, suits this variety. Our emphasis is on low yielding vines that are pruned and trained to allow dappled light to reach the fruit zone to slow ripening and enhance aroma and flavour.

Oak:
100% for 14 months.
15% New French, 15% New American, 70% 2 year French and American
