VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
This wine is a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 15% malbec, the malbec not mentioned on the front label given the quantity offered in the blend has varied from 0% to 15%.

The fruit was picked and sorted in mid April 2018. It was cold soaked in small fermenters for twelve days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration allowing for the softening of the tannins. Thirty percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one year old (50%) and two year old (20%) Bordeaux barriques for thirteen months maturation before final blending and bottling in August 2019.

Great Southern Regional Approach
Singlefile’s dedication to making exceptional wines is paralleled by its commitment to the Great Southern region. It’s as large as it is diverse. Its geography is a patchwork of coastal maritime land, gently undulating hills, open grazing country, eucalypt forests and granite outcrops. A true liquorice all-sorts of land girt by sea. And this variety is what makes the Great Southern so convincing as a supreme winemaking region. To read more about the Great Southern’s viticultural history.

Enter Singlefile Wines. Line them up, one by one, and each wine will tell a story of the place from which it comes. Singlefile shapes three tiers of Chardonnays from its estate vineyard in Denmark, but it also makes wines from carefully selected sites throughout the Great Southern, bringing varieties to life in their happiest subregional locations.

Since its first vintage in 2008, Singlefile has been establishing relationships with growers all over the Great Southern, guided by wine luminary Larry Cherubino to select sites and varieties of the utmost excellence. Let’s take a tour of the Great Southern and dip into each of its regions.
