2019 Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Estate range wines are vibrant expressions of varietal flavour. Our Estate Cabernet was made from fruit that was harvested at its optimum maturity, and then fermented for 7 days under controlled temperatures in small static fermenters. Maturation for 18 months in French oak Hogshead barrels has assisted in the development of a wine that shows vibrancy and richness.

It has an aroma of blackcurrant and plum, mint and menthol with subtle French oak in the background.

Ripe black fruits on the palate, blackberry and mulberry highlights. Medium in body, nicely balanced acidity finishing with a classic Coonawarra chalky tannin structure.

Subsequently, aged in bottle for two years for smoothness and drinkability. This is an elegant expression of Coonawarra’s regionality, and will repay cellaring for at least ten years.

Alc /Vol: 14.5%

"Opaque at the core, deep ruby red into the rim. Blackberry, dusty earth and cigar box aromatics. Palate is classic cabernet, dark berries with ironstone, tomato leaf and dusty earth characters all flowing across the palate. Gravelly tannins complete the profile, ensuring the intensity doesn’t overpower and carrying the finish very long and bone dry to the end." 92 points, Stuart Knox, The Real Review - 8 JAN 2024
