2014 1L Cabernet Sauvignon
Crimson with purple hues.
Dark plum with nutmeg spice and interwoven oak.
Soft palate with blackberry and forest floor flavours. Integrated, subtle oak adds complexity and gives the wine a long finish. Natural fruit acidity works effortlessly with the tannins to give further depth of flavour.
The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the southern reaches of South Australia. The individual parcels were selected and harvested, then fermented separately to ensure each parcel articulated the unique character of each vine. All ferments were left on skins for a minimum of 7 days. During the oak maturation period in French and American new and old oak, each individual batch of barrels was racked and returned periodically to seamlessly integrate the tannins into the wine.
Drinking well upon release. Will reward with further cellaring over the next 3-5 years.
