The Vintage & Winemaking

The continental cool climate sub-region of Frankland River sits within the north west corner of the
Great Southern wine region (its latitude 34°39’S). The Riversdale vineyard, planted in 1997 on deep
gravel over clay soils, on a north-south orientation, is located 7kms north west of the Frankland River
township.
This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit picked and sorted on 29th March 2012. It was cold
soaked in a small fermenter for ten days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration. Forty
percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one year old
(30%) and two year old (30%) Bordeaux barriques for twelve months.
