Cabernets 2016 Limited Release

$22.00 CELLAR CLUB
$19.80

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep purple with ruby hue. Rich and bright ripe plums and cassis on the nose with nutmeg and vanilla notes coming through from the oak.

Wine Making

Our separate blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon and Ruby Cabernet are fermented in stainless steel, spending up to two weeks on skins before pressing for malolatic fermentation and barrel maturation and eventual blending to ensure the right balance.

Cellaring

Our 2016 Limited Release Cabernets is cheeky and juvenile but with enough weight and tannin to match with a hearty slow cooked lamb shank or a generous wedge of crumbly parmesan. Enjoy now or cellar for upto 15 years.

Date Tasted: June 2018

T.A (g/l): 6.7g/l

Palate:

Fresh ripe berries on the palate like a summer pudding with some creamy weight behind. The chewy mouthcoating tannin profile of the Ruby Cabernet shines through leaving the palate satisfied with some rich plummy fruit behind.
