Angus won this one. The decision to make an Eden Valley Cabernet comes from Angus’s love of the Region.
Deep purple crimson in color, with a varietal complex nose of violets, black currents and plums. On the palate pronounced black cherries, mulberries and star anise. A complex wine that is well rounded and finishes with silky, lingering tannins.
Our Single vineyard Cabernet was destemmed and crushed into small one tonne open top fermenters allowing for maximum control over the fermentation period. The fruit was then held at 10-15 degrees for four days before allowing to warm naturally and start fermentation. After 15 days on skins the wines were pressed to 20% new, 80% seasoned French oak Hogsheads where they matured for 12 months. No fining or filtration was used on these wines.
This Single Vineyard Cabernet comes from a vineyard just outside of Springton, in the Eden Valley. With an elevation of 390 metres it is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon.
