The Cabernet Sauvignon was made from fruit which was harvested at its optimum maturity, then fermented for 7 days under controlled temperatures in a combination of rotary and static fermenters.
Maturation for 18 months in small French oak Hogshead barrels has assisted in the development of a wine that shows vibrancy and richness.
Subsequently, aged in bottle for two years for smoothness and drinkability. A benchmark Coonawarra Cabernet featuring a medium-bodied palate of subtle menthol and well-integrated French oak. Complex and well-balanced with fine grained tannins to finish. Luscious and juicy, filled with black fruits. Generous yet soft, with an elegant finish.
An elegant expression of Coonawarra’s regionality, the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon will repay cellaring for at least ten years.
