Fruit for the Twist of Fate Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Jack Kay’s Bool Lagoon vineyard situated in the Limestone Coast region. The terra rossa soils and cool climate of this area make it a perfect location for growing flavoursome Cabernet. Following harvest in early April, the fruit was fermented in stainless steel open fermenters for 7 days. Malolactic fermentation was also completed in stainless steel to retain freshness and aromatics. The blend was then barrelled down to 1st fill and older French barriques and hogsheads for 9 months maturation prior to bottling.
