DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Dense, dark red with purple tints. Rich blackcurrant and blackberry on the nose with aged oak offering complexity.

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 2018 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

Date Tasted: June 2020
Alcohol: 14.5%
T.A (g/l): 6.4g/l
pH: 3.5pH

Palate:

This medium to full bodied wine is tightly structured with blackcurrant and blackberry at the forefront. The good acidity makes way for a firm finish as typical for the Ruby Cabernet. A straightforward, rustic & solid Rutherglen red. An ageworthy wine that will reward careful cellaring.
