Barossa Tower Cabernet Merlot 2010
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

This blend including a dash of Petit Verdot, is sourced from four of our loyal growers with vineyards in the Barossa-sub regions of Kalimna, Lyndoch, Seppeltsfield and Stonewell. Lifted aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant and plum accompanied by chocolate and dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins from eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads.

 

Winemaking

The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 28° C. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press and the wine spent 18 months in French oak hogsheads (300l).

Currently not available for purchase.
