Barossa Tower Cabernet Merlot 2015
Tasting Notes

This blend is sourced from five of our loyal growers with vineyards  across various Barossa-sub regions.

It is this tapestry of ‘terroirs’ which enables us to create our house style of Barossa Cabernet Merlot with lifted aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant and plum accompanied by chocolate and dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins from  maturation in both new and seasoned oak barrels.

 

Winemaking

The grapes are destemmed but not crushed. Fermentation takes place in small stainless steel open fermenters adapted to the size of individual vineyard parcels. Careful hand plunging takes place twice daily. Optimum temperatures are sustained over the course of fermentation to ensure the true expression of the terroir; rich flavours, colour and aromas are drawn out. 

The wine is gently basket pressed in individual vineyard parcels over the course of several hours. Our basket press combines state of the art technology with traditional winemaking. 

Maturation in the finest French and American Oak 300l Hogshead barrels results in a wine of great structure and finesse
