Grown and hand picked in the Mclaren Vale region, the vines that these grapes came from were older yet well balanced. A classic situation where the winemaker took a more hands off approach and let the wine do what it wanted. All this beautiful young wine needed was 16 months in two year old oak barrels to produce a full bodied Mclaren Vale Cab Sav that dances on the pallet.
TO THE NOSE
Cabernet Sauvignon is fragrant and bold with perfume of red berries, cassis, dried herbs and cedary French oak.
Cabernet can be knows for its tannin, dryness or astringency. However, the ideal maritime conditions of the McLaren Vale wine region have ensured genuine ripeness and a rich flavour. Delicately firm, while slightly fruity and sweet our Cabernet dances from the nose to the pallet with its rich, bold tones. Undertones of oak offer persistence while the fruit remains the vital core.
