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.

TASTING 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.
