In the Vineyard
The growing season prior to harvest had a combination of good spring rains followed by a relatively warm dry summer. These are the perfect conditions to produce rich flavorsome fruit with substantial colour and tannin structure in the skins. Only a small selection of the Kersbrook vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was selected and machine harvested at night.
In the Winery
The grapes were destemmed and fermented in traditional open fermenters and the skins were hand plunged twice daily. Final fermentation was completed in barrel followed by 18 months maturation in those barrels. The wine was bottled with minimum filtration therefore may produce a slight crust after bottle maturation.
Colour: Deep brick red with an inky hue.
Nose: Intense blackcurrant, dark chocolate and ripe plum aromas greet you, followed by some sensual sweet, nutty oak nuances. Liquorice and earthy overtones are mellowing with over 2 years bottle maturation, resulting in a complex and inviting bouquet.
Palate: The medium to heavy weighted rich flavours are attributable to the warmer site selection of the vineyard in the furthermost Northern section of the Adelaide Hills. Flavours of black olive, spice and liquorice give a wonderful mouth feel and lingering aftertaste. The tannins at the back of the palate will soften after further cellaring and reward you for many years to come.
