Wild-fermented in French barriques with extended lees maturation of 10 months after the conclusion of fermentation in those barrels. Plantagenet was one of the pioneers of chardonnay in the Great Southern, and its experience shows through with the combination of elegance and intensity of the varietal fruit, oak in respectful support, as is bright acidity.

We are very proud of our 2012 Plantagenet Cabernet Sauvignon so it's great to see it being recognised for its wonderful characteristics and cellaring potential.
"Finely crafted, this very elegant young cabernet of medium to full body has the balance and underlying structure to age gracefully. Lightly minty and herbal, its bright, layered fragrance of cassis, small red berries and cedar/vanilla oak reveals nuances of chocolate and a hint of pine needle that should disappear over time. Supported by a pliant spine of dusty, crunchy tannin, it’s long and evenly measured, building richness and depth of fruit towards its persistent finish. A classical style".
