The Cabernet Sauvignon Dalton is a dark, rich and well-balanced wine, showing characteristic Cabernet Sauvignon forest fruit qualities such as currants, berries and mint, which are complemented very well with subtle vanilla flavours of French Oak.

Wine maker notes
The grapes were selectively picked by hand in late September and early October.
During fermentation the grape cap was hand punched several times a day to increase the depth of colour and levels of extraction of the wine in the gentlest way possible. Before completing fermentation the wine was pressed out, and the free run wine was separated and used to make this wine. Malolactic fermentation was then encouraged and when completed the wine was racked into French and American oak barrels for just over a year.
Once the aging was complete, each barrel was individually tasted and the final blend was made.
This wine goes particularly well with grilled meats, steak, hamburgers and also roast chicken.
