Cabernets 2017 Limited Release

$22.00 CELLAR CLUB
$19.80

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Dense, dark red. Rich and bright blackcurrant and berry on the nose with nutmeg and vanilla notes coming through from the soft oak treatment.

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 2017 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 up to 15 years.

Technical

The Grapes: 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Ruby Cabernet, 1% Shiraz. Grapes for this wine come from our Silverburn and our Grahams vineyard, both close by our winery in Rutherglen.
Date Tasted: June 2019
Alcohol: 14.5%
T.A (g/l): 6.8g/l
pH: 3.46pH

Dense, dark red. Rich and bright blackcurrant and berry on the nose with nutmeg and vanilla notes coming through from the soft oak treatment.

Palate:

Lifted ripe black fruitt on the palate with some mid weight behind. The tight structure gives way to fine tannins that offer a grippy, mouthfilling finish. An ageworthy wine that will reward careful cellaring.
