Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

'Alexander's Vineyard'

Winemaking Notes

The fruit is sourced from our Alexanders Vineyard in the sub region of Treeton and Wildberry Vineyard in Wilyubrup.

The grapes were picked by taste for optimum ripeness. Fermentation was conducted in stainless steel vats between 22 - 28°C with selected parcels being held on skins for an extended period to develop tannin structure. Post fermentation the must was pressed to a combination of new and old French oak barriques. The wine matured in these
small oak vessels for approximately 15 months before being individually selected for the final blend. Once blended the wine received a light protein fining to soften the palate and improve tannin structure.

Nose

This wine exhibits aromas of savoury leafy eucalyptus, black currant, dark plums, raspberries and cedar oak with hints of clove spice.

Palate

The full-bodied palate is generous with flavours of blackberry and raspberry complimented with cedar oak. Supple tannins provide a nice length with a persistent berry fruit finish.

Food Pairing

Beef short ribs, braised beef and a steak burger.
