50 Year Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

Deep magenta in colour with a vibrant nose of dark fruit, chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon aromas. An exotic and full-bodied palate driven by flavours of fruits of the forest, blackcurrant and a hint of tomato leaf bound together by succulent fine-grained tannins. A wine of great length which will reward many years in the cellar.

Winemaking

The grapes are destemmed, but not crushed, and spend seven days on their skins in open fermenters with twice daily hand-plunging and pumping over of the cap to more gently extract colour, flavours and tannins.This is followed by careful basket pressing and malolactic fermentation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak prior to 24 months maturation in our cellars. 

 

In keeping with our non-interventionalist winemaking style we neither fine nor filter this wine.

93 Points, #1 Barossa Cabernet 2013
Review by: Huon Hooke, huonhooke.com
Ranked #1 of 17 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon tasted from Barossa Valley Deep red colour with a faint tinge of purple. The bouquet is all about berries, raspberry and blackberry, the palate rich and fleshy, with ample tannins which are supple and yet persuasive. Good solid grip and aftertaste, and plenty of aging potential. 20/5/2016 Drink 2016 to 2036
