Winemaking

The fruit was handpicked in March 2019, then crushed, destemmed and cold soaked. After a long fermentation, the wine was aged for 12 to 14 months in reserve French oak barrels that are one to three years of age. Minimal filtration and no fining required.

Viticulture

The combination of cool weather and decomposed granite soils produces outstanding Cabernet fruit on the Granite Belt. Ballandean Estate founder Angelo Puglisi recognised this potential and planted the Opera Block Cabernet vines in 1975, which have been lovingly nurtured for many years. This vigorous variety produces a lot of fruit, but we the cropping level by thinning before flowering. Our cool nights are excellent for acidity.
