2018 DJ Reserve Cabernet


Continue Shopping

DJ is a man of few words; as straight up and down as the prized rows of vines he cares for. His passion for grape growing is only exceeded by his passion for his family and sport (especially sport!). This reserve Cabernet is a deserving testament to him; to his passion, his grit, his down-right stubbornness, and his relentless efforts to grow the best fruit possible.

Machine-harvested from the Old Block planted ‘73, destemmed and crushed, 3 days cold soak, wild yeast open-fermented, 12 days on skins, matured in French hogsheads (35% new). Rich McLaren Vale cabernet, it’s full-bodied, but carries its weight easily. The tannins were never going to be a problem, and the oak was well judged, leaving the great Reynell clone free to speak in its effortlessly pure fashion.
