2022 Carrodus Cabernet Sauvignon

Medal One
Medal Two

Blackberry fruits, complimented by a nettle leaf lift, a wonderful energy, concentrated and precise. A fragrant youthful wine with vibrant acidity, some liquorice spice, and fine tannins that support its fruit intensity.

97 Points - Huon Hooke, The Real Review


Hand harvested, destemmed and individually berry sorted before being crushed into our Yarra Yering 600kg open fermenters. Hand plunged twice daily until fermentation is complete, some extended time on skins until tannins soften before deciding to press based on taste. Gravity filled to French oak Bordeaux shaped barrels completing malolactic fermentation in the cool underground cellars. 40% new oak, 15 months maturation.
