Patricia Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The fruit was sourced from premium Victorian vinayrds, to bring together a complex and well-balenced expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Individual parcels were matured in new and aged French oak barriques for 18 months before being blended to achieve concentrated fruit character and subtle tannins giving this wine sensationnal length and cellaring potential. Patricia would have loved it.
