    Cabernet Blend

    This is the most classic leaning wine from the release and a joy to drink now or throw in the cellar. The Baw Baw Cabernet Blend comes from the biodynamic Wild Dog vineyard farmed by Patrick Sullivan & William Downie in Gippsland. The vines are 38 years old and planted on rich red volcanic soils. They picked just under a tonne of each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. All grapes were de-stemmed and macerated on skins in stainless tank for 22 days, during which they were foot stomped (by Jess and Freya) twice a week. Once pressed they were transferred to a selection of wood for 10 month elevage. Bottled unfiltered and un- fined with 15 parts of SO2 added in the month leading up to bottling.
