Cabernet Sauvignon made from organically grown grapes matured in French oak barrels.
Bold and exciting, with dark berries, spice and dried herbs. Fine tannins and great length on the palate.
Food Match: Grilled Beef and red wine jus. Hard cheese.
Every family has its stalwart, the grape family has Cabernet Sauvignon and my family has Uncle Alick.
Dependable, distinguished, and debonair. A tower of strength. Alick could only be a Cabernet Sauvignon worthy of ageing.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown organically on dry stony soils of Hawkes Bay, the vines are gnarly and cling to life with a determination to flourish.
Complex and exciting, dark berries, dried herbs and wet gravel flavours and aromas. Bold and elegant on the palate. This is a cabernet sauvignon that will mature with elegance.
Planted in 1999 the Cabernet sauvignon is grown organically in free draining, deep gravel soils.
I follow traditional, gentle, and low intervention, attentive winemaking. Fermentation with indigenous yeast, gently working of the fermenting wine, post ferment maceration, basket pressing and ageing in French oak barrels until the tannins are elegant and the flavours refined. Alick is bottled unfiltered.
Alick will reward careful cellar ageing.
