Peacock Family Vineyard
Description

What makes Peacock Family Vineyard one of the world’s most unusual Cabernet Sauvignons? It begins with the spectacular steep rolling knoll where the vineyards perch. What makes hillside or mountain wine so different? “It’s because we have smaller berries,” explains winemaker Craig Becker. “We have to get the tannins soft and fleshy before we pick. By waiting for tannin development, we can extract all the potential of the grape during fermentation without having to worry about excessive tannins,” he adds. “Anyone can make a concentrated and extracted wine, but for depth of flavor, balance and the right elegant tannic structure, you need mountain grapes. There are many viticultural explanations, but it may come down to that the vine is constantly in a struggling state.”
