The Helen’s Hill ‘Old Orchard’ Cabernets combines all 5 of the traditional Bordeaux varieties to produce a classic cool climate Cabernets. ‘Old Orchard’ Cabernets displays the perfect balance of lifted aromatics and powerful rich fruits complemented with fine tannins.
All the fruit for this wine is grown on Helen’s Hill single vineyard site and hand picked at harvest to ensure that each batch is picked at optimal ripeness. The fruit is de-stemmed and crushed into their open top fermenters to undergo primary fermentation for 12 days.
The wine then spends up to 6 weeks in the fermenters going through post ferment maceration to extract maximum colour and tannins from skins after which it is pressed off to French oak barrels for 18 months. A beautiful drinking wine whether with food or sitting next to the fire.
Derek’s personal favourite.
