Joachim Zerk, an early German pioneer farmer, settled in the Barossa Valley in 1846. He purchased for 200 pounds what he considered a perfect site for a vineyard. 160 years later, the Zerk family still grow grapes in old vineyards of which Section 3146 is a part. This Cabernet has an abundance of ripe blackcurrant fruit on the palate that pairs seamlessly with layers of tobacco and mint finishing with a balanced tannin structure.

Background

An early vintage coupled with great ripening conditions resulted in generous wines from the Barossa Valley in 2015. Cabernet Sauvignon was a standout red variety this vintage, with loads of body and fruit flavour but keeping varietal characteristics such as herbal mint and leafy notes that Cabernet is famous for. The fruit was picked in the cool of the night and fermented in open fermenters with daily pump overs and several drain downs. It has spent 24 months in small barrique barrels maturing in the cellar. The small format oak accentuates the savory tobacco and toast characters in the wine, which adds to its marvellous complexity.
