Farm to Table
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep, dense red with bright purple hues. Youthful and vibrant, the nose displays ripe blackberry characteristics with subtle notes of oak spice and dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, rich dark red fruits and soft tannins.
The fruit was harvested during the day between 30 March - 9 April 2016. This wine was fermented in high tech, stainless steel, sweep-arm fermenters at 25 ̊C (77 ̊F) to maximise colour and flavour. For this Cabernet Sauvignon, we used a relatively neutral yeast strain called RP15. This allows the natural aroma and flavour characteristics of the grapes to speak for themselves. This wine was matured using a combination of new French oak (80%) and American oak (20%).
