The Soler Vineyard is situated on free-draining gravel soils in the sunny Hawkes Bay which is well suited to applying organic farming principles. This Cabernet Sauvignon showcases a deep ruby colour and perfumed varietal characters of dark plum, dried herbs, vanilla spice and coffee bean. The palate displays polished tannins ensuring a soft yet full-bodied mouthfeel.

Food Pairing

Cabernet Sauvignon is particularly good when paired with robust, full-flavoured dishes, red meat and cheeses. Drink now or hold for up to 5-8 years when the wine will develop further complexity.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The 2018 Hawkes Bay vintage followed on from officially one of the warmest summers on record, which gave red varietals in particular superb conditions for ripening. Once crushed to open-top fermenters the grapes were inoculated with Bio-grow approved yeast and fermented at 30 degrees C. Post fermentation the parcels were pressed to oak barriques, 15% new, for 14 months maturation. The wine was blended, free-range egg white fined and filtered to bottle.
