Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

$25.00

 

NEW VINTAGE RELEASE - BEST CABERNET 2018 Royal Adelaide Wine Show

 

Winemaking

Only select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, grown on both red and black soils over limestone on the Davey Estate vineyard, qualify for this reserve wine. Partial cold soaking prior to fermentation maximises the fragrance of the finished wine. Extended fermentation time on skins helps to capture the essence of the fruit and gives a silky but firm tannin finish. Maturation for an average of 15 months in 1 – 6 year old fine-grained French oak hogsheads, softens, enhances and integrates the fruit and structural components of the wine. 

Tasting Note

Deep red. Aromas of blackcurrant and blueberry are highlighted with nuances of bay leaf and dark chocolate. Textured savoury tannins envelop the luscious mulberry fruit flavours of this full-bodied, varietal McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

* No animal products are used in the production of this wine.

Juicy engaging black plum, damson fruits and violets on the nose, with refreshing acidity and persistent fresh fruit flavours on the finish.
