Qantas Magazine has previously described this wine as, “like Margaret River Cabernet with the volume turned way up”. Ben Gould likes to think his Bernard Cab is more like watching a band live versus hearing them on the radio. Either way, this deep, punchy Cab is made from a single block of Cabernet Sauvignon on Blind Corner's Wilyabrup vineyard, certified organic and biodynamic since 2016. Taking its cue from Valpolicella’s Amarone, Gould handpicks his fruit and air-dries the bunches prior to fermentation. He finds this intensifies the fruit flavours, gives the wine a more potent edge and softens and lengthens the wine’s tannins. The grapes are then foot-crushed and hand-plunged during spontaneous fermentation, then basket pressed to mature French oak barrels. There, the blend matures for 12 months before being bottled without fining.
