  • TASTING NOTE / ABOUT THE WINE: A warm and low-yielding vintage has delivered a hallmark Cabernet of intensity and depth, a round and even textured version of the pure TOM CULLITY, ever transparent to the vintage that was. The small sections of Tom’s old plots were early to ripen by the end of March. They were hand-picked, destemmed and transferred to fermenter without crushing and then allowed to ferment with the natural yeast. The Cabernet is static fermented, gently pumped over through a splash tub and then left on skins for up to 29 days to stabilise and make structurally sound. The Malbec and some Cabernet Sauvignon were open fermented, hand plunged and pressed dry. All batches were basket-pressed to fine French oak and matured for 18 months. Only 30% of the barriques were racked and returned once, with the remaining barriques left on lees for the full 18 months. A small amount of Petit Verdot was used as a little seasoning in this warmer vintage. Classic, high-quality old vine portions of Malbec were used, bringing the darker more mulberry fruit to the foreground, adding to the beautiful mix of red-fruited, ancient clonal Cabernet that Tom planted.
