Winemaking:
The Blackbutt is a fine tuned blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), Malbec (14%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Merlot (1%) from the oldest blocks of estate grown fruit. The parcels are fermented separately in small open vats and hand plunged 3 times a day before pressing and maturation in French oak for 20 months.
Vintage:
A warm and sunny start to the 2010 vintage led to early flavour development at lower sugar levels, producing wines of great flavour while retaining delicacy and finesse.
Colour:
Bright crimson with a garnet rim
Nose:
Lifted aromas of cassis, tobacco and dried herbs
Palate:
Complex flavours of cassis layered with earthy forest floor notes with a vibrant line of acidity that carries the dusty, fine grained tannin structure to an even, balanced finish.
Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now, but will gain further complexity over eight to ten years with careful cellaring.
Alcohol:

13.6%
