Vibrant aromas of cherry and sweet spice

The Rock of Solitude is a special place in our vineyard, a single flat rock facing west, overlooking Geographe Bay.
In the quiet of the early morning and evening this is the perfect place to seek seclusion and regain energy from the earth.
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were machine-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferments were pumped over twice a day.
Postalcoholic fermentation, it was pressed to tank before racking off to barrel for malo-lactic fermentation and maturation.
The wine was then blended together, fined, filtered and bottled.
