2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Estate range wines are vibrant expressions of varietal flavour. The Cabernet Sauvignon was made from fruit which was harvested at its optimum maturity. The wine was fermented for 7 days under controlled temperatures in a combination of rotary and static fermenters. Maturation for 16 months in small French oak barrels has assisted in the development of a wine that shows vibrancy and richness. Subsequently, aged in bottle for two years for smoothness and drinkability. A benchmark Coonawarra Cabernet featuring a rich, full palate of mulberry and blackcurrant complimented by soft chalky tannins, subtle menthol and well-integrated French oak. Complex and well-balanced with an elegant, silky finish. An elegant expression of Coonawarra’s regionality, the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon will repay cellaring for at least ten years.
