Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Deep red crimson. An aromatic young wine showing varietal mulberry and blackberry fruit, fine grain cedar like French oak site perfectly with the fresh fruit adding depth to the aroma. A medium to full bodied wine, with intense mulberry and cassis across the mid palate leading to a stylish long finish with integrated fine oak balanced acidity and velvet like fine tannin.
The grapes were fermented on skins for ten days with pumping over twice a day. The wine then spent approx twelve months in French and American oak barriques prior to bottling.
A well structured and balanced wine that is appealing in its youth and given the wines structure will continue to develop with time in bottle. Enjoy over the coming 8-10 years with
BBQ lamb and an eggplant ragout.
"Our Cabernet Sauvignon displays all the hallmarks of our Rutherglen reds,
pure rich fruit, true varietal character and the tannin structure for longevity." - Colin Campbell
