Winemaking
The fruit for the Hedonist Cabernet Sauvignon is grown biodynamically on our ownvineyard situated in the McLaren Vale. Warm summer days are cooled by eveningsea breezes from St. Vincent’s Gulf, which lies in a close proximity to the West.The soil is rich loam over clay with patches of underylying limestone, giving thewine a rich and fullness of palate. The 2007 vintage was dry throughout thesummer permitting small berries with intense colour and flavour, giving high levelsof ripe skin tannins. After gentle crushing, the must was pumped into traditional open fermenters withtwice daily pumping over and hand plunging. Fermentation continued at up to 30degrees centigrade ensuring optimum extraction of long chain soft tannins. TheCabernet was racked, fermentation was completed in oak. Maturation of the wineoccurred in 70% new French and one year old American oak.

Tasting Note
The Hedonist Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark deep ruby and purple colour. On the nose there are hints of mixed red berries, plentiful black cherries and caramel oak.The palate has juicy fruit, red berries and perfectly integrated French and Americanoak. An elegant and beautifully balanced wine, with a long lingering finish.

Serving Suggestion
Excellent with medium-hard goat cheeses platters and pasta with cheese based sauce. Cannot be missed for BBQs, where it will enhance the flavours of beef cuts, especially when rare/medium-rare.
