2018 ‘Elderslee Road’ Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2018 ‘Elderslee Road’ Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon:

The Elderslee Road vineyard is home to our best Cabernet. Elderslee Road runs along one of the ancient dunes or shorelines that make up the Wrattonbully landscape. These ancient dunes harbour the famed red “Terra Rossa” topsoil over free draining Gambier Limestone, perfectly suited to growing great Cabernet.

Flavours of red currant and blackberry integrate perfectly with spicy French oak. A rich palate packed with sweet ripe berry fruits balanced by time spent in French oak. Fine ripe tannins provide great structure and depth to the long and generous palate. A full bodied Cabernet of distinction.

VINEYARD:

Wrattonbully is located in the Limestone Coast wine zone. The prominent viticultural feature of the area is the series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run roughly north-south through the area. These ridges are made up of soft crumbly limestone which weathers to produce the red and brown Terra Rossa clay loam soils so highly prized for grape growing.

The ridges and dunes have elevations of up to 30m compared with the neighbouring regions to the south with a Terra Rossa ‘high’ of less than 5m. The extra elevation on the Wrattonbully dunes produce the advantage of cold air drainage which reduces the risk of frost during the growing season.
