Rags to Riches Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Plums, cherry, mulberry, and subtle anise.
Concentrated mulberry and blackberry are balanced with cool climate acidity, savoury forest floor and lingering tannins.
A mild 2020 spring with reasonable rainfall provided excellent growing conditions. A wet November followed by a warm and dry December and January set the vines for up for a regular season. However wet and humid conditions in February created an unusual vintage with extreme weather conditions. As a result, the 2021 vintage required extra work and attention to detail in the vineyard. The Wilyabrup block responded well to the extra work and achieved optimum ripeness. The final wine shows great fruit purity and varietal expression with lower alcohol which helps the aromatics pop.
