2016 Double Happy Cabernet Sauvignon Blend
"A delightful lifted fragrance of violets, blueberry, raspberry and cassis, with a note of cinnamon, the palate rich and elegant intense and quite powerful, with abundant fine-grained tannins and lovely balance. It's loaded with charm and is already approachable. A superb wine.”

- Tasting Notes
The 2016 growing season was warm and dry. The spring rains set up the season and good rains in January allowed very good flavour development whilst maintaining natural acid. The vintage was a couple of weeks ahead of the typical. The hottest day for summer was 35.6°C. The fruit is from a range of blocks at Koomooloo. The grapes were handpicked early in the morning, chilled and whole bunch pressed (1200L basket press) to tank to remove heavy solids. The juice was racked to barrel later the same day.
