|Vintage Description: |
Our King Billy is without a doubt a winemaking indulgence; it is all about showcasing our best parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon from our oldest Mount Barker Vines
Very simply, the best 4 barrels from our many batches of Cabernet Sauvignon were reserved, bottled with low intervention and then matured in bottle for 3½ years. The extended maturation in bottle, rather than in oak, is a conscious move to ensure the wine develops complexity without losing its vibrant fruit character. This wine is still really fresh, with a good deep colour and already belies its age. ‘Seamless’ is a descriptor that describes it well.
