Family Cabernet Sauvignon

Current vintage

2014

Developed specifically for partnering with food, this Cabernet Sauvignon showcases blackberries, roasted nuts and dark chocolate, while the soft, textural tannin enhances the wines richness and length, giving a soft and juicy yet structured finish.

Appearance

Deep red with purple hues.

Bouquet

Classic varietal leafiness, blackberry, blackcurrant, dark spice with hints of spearmint and dark chocolate.

Palate

Blackcurrant and black cherry fruit lead into a creamy juicy mid palate of cardamom, cinnamon and dark chocolate. The soft ripe tannins enhance the wines richness and up front appeal, it is the overall balance, length and structured finish that enables it to match fabulously with food.

Winemaking

2014 vintage was quite mild post veraison which aided flavour development in advance of sugar accumulation. The mild days in late February and early March allowed a consistent and condensed ripening period, the fruit was harvested in a short period between mid and the end of March. The preservation of the bright fruit flavours and leafy aromatics reflect the mild days during the latter stages of ripening. Each batch was open fermented for 7-8 days on skins with low intensity pump-overs conducted to preserve the primary fruit flavours in the wine. The wine was then pressed off to finish fermentation in tank or old oak barrels. Most batches spend part of their maturation time in predominately old French and small amount of American oak.
