A wine of utmost intensity, rewarding careful cellaring. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec.
Alan’s Cabernet Pressings is made in exactly the same way as Alan’s Cabernet, but it is the very last drops of wine to be squeezed from the skins in the basket press. This process often takes all night. Our press gently squeezes the skins under a lower pressure. The wine dribbles and drips into a bucket which is then poured into a heavy toasted French oak barrel made of oak from the Troncais forest. The resulting wine is liquid gold, and is either bottled on its own, or is the driving force behind Duck Muck.
There is no current release.
