Quick Overview

Separate vinifications of Pillar Box wines are employed, and 30% of the wine destined for Pillar Box is matured in 90% French and 10% American barrels of varying age. After 12 months the chosen components for Pillar Box Reserve are blended and bottled. Not surprisingly, it is the varietal fruit expression of cabernet in this maritime climate that drives this wine, with fine tannins and enough oak to get it over the line. It will be at its best in 3-5 years.

Winemaker Notes
The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Henry’s Drive Padthaway vineyards. These vines are grown in various soil types including red loam, black loam & deep sand over limestone. Each vineyard destined for the Pillar Box range of wines is harvested at optimum ripeness and then fermented on skins for approximately five days. The free run and pressings are separated and all parcels are kept separate throughout the vinification process. The wines are matured for a period of 18 months and 30% of the wine is matured with oak (90% French and 10% American). At the end of the maturation process, a small portion of the best cabernet sauvignon parcels are blended to make the Pillar Cabernet Sauvignon.


Serving Hints
This wine is a great accompaniment to roasted lamb cutlets.
