14 Months French Oak
Deep crimson with a plum hue.
Elegant aromas of dark rich berries with underlying savoury spice.
Plum, earthy undertones, some sweet spice and fine tannins offer great support giving the wine a long, fruit-driven length.
The 2017 Cabernet sauvignon was machine harvested then destemmed and crushed into static fermenters where it was cold soaked for 6-8 days. Post cold soak the juice was allowed to naturally warm up and then inoculated with yeast. Once fermentation was established the tanks were pumped over with aeration twice a day. Temperature was held between 24-26°C for a slow extraction of tannins and increased development of fermentation complexity. The wine was then pressed and transferred to barrel for malo-lactic fermentation allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. After barrel maturation, the wine was fined with egg whites then bottled.
