Deep red/purple in colour, this Cabernet Sauvignon has quite a varietal nose of cassis and blackcurrant with some dried leaf, tobacco and spicy oak. The palate is loaded with cassis and dark blackcurrant fruit with fine chalky tannin, good balancing acidity and length. This wine will definitely benefit from decanting in its youth.
From the Winery
The fruit for this wine was picked in a number of separate small batches, all of which were de-stemmed and crushed to small open top fermenters. The wine was then pumped over 2-3 times daily throughout fermentation to extract colour, flavour and tannins, prior to pressing to 2 yr old French oak hogsheads. The wine then underwent Malolactic fermentation in oak, prior to maturation in the same barrels until blending and bottling.
