Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria, Australia

PHILOSOPHY
The Fowles family is very committed to ethical and sustainable viticultural practices, as well as hunting and living off the 800 acre expanse they occupy in this remote region, Matt Fowles launched the Farm to Table range of wines to help promote this deep connection to the land.

VINEYARD
All of the fruit is sourced from Fowles estate vineyards in the super cool-climate Strathbogie Ranges of Central Victoria at an elevation of over 1600 feet.  The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was picked from Billi’s vineyard in mid-April in 2018.

Vintage Notes: 2018 was an outstanding year. Conditions were near perfect throughout the whole growing season. The year was warm without being too hot and the vines were able to ripen the fruit to the degree we desired without any stress. This means all aspects of fruit composition was good and acid was naturally maintained.

CELLAR
The wine was matured using old and new French oak. We blended in a small portion of Shiraz (15%) from our Upton Run vineyard which contributes ripe, juicy red berry flavors and fills out the mid palate.

PH 3.57                T/A 7.2 g/L               Alc 15%
