Normans Bin C183 - Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Normans Bin C183 - Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Deep dense crimson red. Youthful style with black cherries, plums and mulberry notes with underlying spice and oak evident along with chocolate and coffee.

Vibrant and punchy aromas of cassis and liquorice, evolving into darker aromas of choc-mint. The palate is full and generous, and shows amazing level of restraint and cohesion between all the characters. This Cabernet gives a beautiful finish with some good length. 

Winemaking

Fruit from a single vineyard site in Langhorne Creek was used in this wine. The fruit was crushed and pressed gently before being fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine had 12 months in older 2-4 year old hogshead and barrique barrels.

Normans Bin C207 - Riesling 2017

Pale straw with green hue. Lifted floral blossom, lemon, lime and mineral notes with some white peach characters. This is a textbook Clare Valley Riesling. 

Intense, fresh, crisp and dry; delicate palate of zesty lemon and lime provide a mouth watering opening while crisp natural acidity and grape sugar provides the perfect combination.

Winemaking

Selected parcels of fruit were sourced from vineyards in the Clare Valley region of South Australia. The fruit was machine picked during the cool early hours of the morning which enabled us to select only the best fruit from the vineyards from this wonderful vintage. The fruit was then rapidly transported to the winery and immediately crushed, chilled and pressed, where the free run juice and pressings were separated. The juice is cold settled for 3-4 days, racked off solids and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Post fermentation individual batches were blended to style then the finished parcels were carefully assessed, with only the finest chosen for the final blend prior to bottling.

Cellaring

Drinking beautifully now, but will cellar well for 3 or so years for those who like Riesling with a little age to develop more oily characters.

Medium straw in colour and complex aromas. Fruit driven style with lovely stone fruit ripe intensity with some underlying freshly cut grass aromas.

Normans Bin C108 - Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Bright green to pale lemon colour. Aromas of citrus, passionfruit and freshly cut grass dominate. There is more depth than your average Sauvignon Blanc with some gooseberry and a touch of flint in the background. Zesty and flavoursome.

Excellent balanced acidity keeps the wine fresh and zippy on the palate, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours are very appealing balance with the acid to give a very clean and crisp taste on the closing palate.

Winemaking

Select parcels of fruit were sourced from a single vineyard in the iconic cool climate region of the Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand picked during the cool early hours of the morning - this enabled us to select only the best fruit from the vineyard from this tough vintage. The fruit was then transported to the winery and immediately crushed, chilled and pressed, where the free run juice and pressings were separated. The juice is cold settled for 3-4 days, racked off solids and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Post fermentation individual batches are blended to style then the finished parcels are carefully assessed, with only the finest chosen for the final blend prior to bottling.

Cellaring

Made to drink upon release while the fruit flavour is at its most fresh and vibrant although will develop more character over the short term.
