A Fortnight is a unit of time equal to
14 days (2 weeks). While every
harvest season is the culmination of
a full 12 months of rigorous
preparation and strenuous effort to
produce the best wines possible,
there is a specific, almost magical
moment during the harvest period
when we must decide when to pick
each block and begin the journey of
transforming beautifully ripened
fruit into exceptionally crafted wine.
With this in mind we decided that
starting with the 2012 harvest we
would keep a journal recording this
transformation from grape to wine
and from these experiences Fortnight
was born. A layered and complex Cabernet
Sauvignon showing rich and inviting
aromas of dark blue and blackberry,
cedar, licorice, graphite and cedar box notes.
Rich, ripe fruit supported by vanilla
and cinnamon with hints of allspice.
Very smooth entry, broad mid-palate
and a long, lingering velvet finish.
