Three Graces Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Merlot 2012
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

‘The Three Graces’ is a classic Bordeaux blend of three of the worlds most noble varieties. A classic lifted nose of blackcurrant cassis and cedar wood with hints of black olive, pepper, violets and tobacco. The palate is an integrated blend of flavours, svelte and seamless showing prominent blackcurrant fruit delicately interwoven with tobacco leaf, capsicum, black pepper and savoury French oak giving the wine an undeniable elegance and generous length.

 

Winemaking

The grapes for the Three Graces are selected from premium vineyards in the Barossa and Eden Valleys including the Krondorf, Lyndoch, Stonewell and Vine Vale sub-regions.

Delivered in small bins the grapes were destemmed (separating berries from the stalks) and placed into stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were pumped over daily spending a total of 7 days on skins at 22 - 28° C. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press and the individual parcels were matured separately for three months before being racked, blended and undergoing a further 20 months in a mixture of French oak hogsheads & puncheons.
