Fortnight Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Blackberries and cassis with dark, macerated maraschino cherries supported by hints of vanilla, cedar and cigar box. Dark and brooding with loads of dark fruit, and a solid core of spice. This wine has a soft entry but has great density across the mid-palate and a long, smooth finish.
A Fortnight is a unit of time equal to 14 days (2 weeks). And while every harvest season is the culmination of a full 12 months of rigorous preparation and strenuous effort to produce the best wines possible, there is a specific and almost magical moment during that period when we must decide our jumping off point and pick that very first cluster. From that point forward the journey has begun in transforming beautifully ripened fruit into exceptionally crafted wine.
