Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
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 18 months maturation in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels.

A lifted nose with gravally notes, subtle funk and purple fruit. The mouthfeel is vibrant and energetic with a core of lifted fruit and crunchy acid.
