Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and vanilla are accompanied by vibrant, dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins from sixteen months maturation in a combination of new and older French oak hogsheads.

Although drinking well now, this wine may be cellared for up to ten years from vintage.

Winemaking

For our Grand Barossa wines we select grapes grown throughout the Barossa and its myriad of sub-regions. It is this tapestry of ‘terroirs’ which enables us to create our classic and refined house style. 

The grapes are destemmed, but not crushed, and fermented in small stainless steel open fermenters. Fermenatation takes place over 7 days with twice daily hand plunging.

After draining the free run juice, the skins are gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press and transferred to barrel for 16 months maturation in a mixture of new and seasoned oak barrels.

Terrific dark purple-garnet hue; it shows its place and is a bold expression of the variety with intense fruit all blackberries and mulberries, dark chocolate, lots of herbs and cedary oak. Quite structured and austere although the sweet fruit tempers the grippy tannins and it feels warm on the finish. Drink By 2028
