Grand Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
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 18 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 temperature controlled small stainless steel open fermenters. Fermentation takes place over 7 days with twice-daily hand plunging.

After draining the free-run juice, the skins are gently pressed before 18 months maturation in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels.

This is splendidly expressed on the nose showing cassis, sweet cherry, spicy oak and vanilla notes, followed by a succulent palate delivering excellent fruit intensity combined with fine texture and grainy tannins, leading to a lengthy delicious finish. At its best: now to 2031

Dense, purple/black colour. The bouquet is quiet to begin with, the wine opened up with time, notes of brambles and soy. Full-bodied, with fine-grained tannin, the flavours redolent of prunes, coffee and Christmas pudding. The palate is spicy, warm and long. Ideal Drinking: 20202030
