The Château Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Tasting Notes

‘The Château’ Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep, rich purple and red hues. The bouquet has lifted aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant and spice on the velvety smooth palate with hints of cedar and mint. The extensive finish is framed by elegant, fine-grained tannins from two years’ maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels.

Winemaking

The grapes for this year’s The Chateau Cabernet Sauvignon were grown on the sandy loam soils of blocks 12 and 16 of our Bethany vineyard which was first planted in 1960.

The grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and spent 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 was followed by careful basket pressing and malolactic fermentation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels prior to maturation in our cellars.
