Background

Background: "We commenced picking Sheoak Cabernet on 27 th March and from the moment the fruit hit the fermenter it looked destined to be a classic. Instantly perfumed and richly coloured, the wine spent 14 days on skins with a peak fermentation temperature of around 28˚C. The wine was pressed to tank and settled briefly before being transferred to a combination of new (25%), two- and three-year-old barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once in this time and, after 18 months in oak, was emptied from barrel. 100% Cabernet from this 100% this great site." - Julian & Alana Langworthy

Tasting Note

"The Sheoak vineyard makes expressive, medium-bodied, silkily structured wines. Darkfruit flavours and high notes of cassis and warm spice frame this slightly more brooding release of the Nocturne SV. While it’s amazingly accessible on release, this wine would love three to six years’ further maturation to really make it shine." - Julian & Alana Langworthy
