Conquest Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Conquest - Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Deep brick red hues. The palate has upfront fruit with plum and black currant being the dominant characters. There’s a hint of mint, toasty tannins and a lingering oak finish. Vintage Coonawarra Cab with cherries, plum and black currant.
Select parcels of fruit were sourced from the iconic terra rossa soils of Coonawarra for this wine. We picked the fruit at optimum ripeness in the cool of the night in order to retain the fruits natural acidity and of course the regional flavours and aromatics that the Coonawarra is world famous for. The wine was transferred to the winery where it was hand reared with extended time on skins. Hand plunging, cool preferment maceration and the use of select yeast, coupled with long post ferment maceration on skins followed the traditional techniques more often used in French winemaking. The wine was aged in new and old oak then select barrels were chosen for the final blend prior to bottling.
Drinking magnificently now, but will reward cellaring mid term, developing more complexity.Varietals Cabernet Sauvignon
