(ENG) 2018 vintage was a standout year for Mudgee wins, despite the long dry weather in much of New South Wales. Mudgee has been very fortunate with idea rainfall in late December and early January, and a warm finish towards veraison has led to low disease pressure and responsible irrigation. The single vineyard wines produced by Cael’s Gate are made from vines planted in 1996, and matured in new premium French oak barrels.
Dense fully body with an aromatic display of dark fruit, spicy oak and sweet tobacco.
On the palate ripe berries, rich fruitcake and chocolate flavours can be noted, along with a silky smooth and velvety finish.
Aged in French oak barrels for 9 months
Contains minimal sulphites
