Matthews Road Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Tasting Notes

Directly from the heart of Eden Valley, the Cabernet Sauvignon is from our cool climate, high altitude vineyard.

A concentrated wine with the expected regional characteristics of mint leaves and ripe dark forest berries on the nose. Well framed tannins and acidity balancing with the subtle toasty oak towards a lengthy finish

Winemaking

The grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and spent seven days fermenting on their skins in open fermenters for more control of each single parcel of grapes. We undertake hand plunging at least twice daily during ferment to more gently extract colour, flavours and tannins.

The wine is then carefully basket-pressed for a more gentle extraction, and softer mouthfeel to the finished wine. It then undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels, before being transferred to a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak to mature for 16 months.
