Story: Open canopies and low yields at the Kuitpo vineyard ensure that our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are matured to optimum ripeness.

Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose: This wine offers restrained cool climate Cabernet aromas of cassis, herbs and blackberries.

Palate: The palate is structured and elegant with blackberries, cassis and chocolate complemented by fine tannins and a touch of mint on the long finish.

Food Pairings: Try the K1 Cabernet Sauvignon with a herb crusted lamb rack.

Oak Maturation: 30% new French oak for 18 months.

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2030

Winemaker: Shane Harris
