2002 was an exceptional vintage year for Victoria, particularly the King and Ovens Valleys. Extended cool, dry ripening conditions and naturally low crops resulted in concentrated fruit flavours. Fruit for The Fugitive has been primarily sourced from high altitude vineyards in the King Valley and blended with a small portion of warmer Ovens Valley fruit which adds richness and complexity. The Fugitive Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 is a deep red colour with vibrant purple hues and a rich, lifted nose of blackcurrants, integrated French oak and touches of mint and eucalyptus. It carries the classical fine structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, red and black berry fruit on the palate, with integrated toasted, vanilla oak. Eighteen months maturation in new French oak barriques andhogsheads and a mixture of one- and two-year-old French and American barrels results in a sophisticated and integrated wine.
