The Château Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Tasting Notes

‘The Château’ Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep, rich purple and red hues.

The bouquet has lifted aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant and spice on the velvety smooth palate with hints of cedar and mint. The extensive finish is framed by elegant, fine-grained tannins from 18 months' maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels.

Winemaking

The grapes for this year’s The Chateau Cabernet Sauvignon were grown on our estate vineyard in the cool climate of the Eden Valley.

The grapes are destemmed, but not crushed, and spend seven days on their skins in open fermenters with regular battonage to more gently extract colour, flavours and tannins. Following fermentation, the wine is carefully basket pressed prior to maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels for 18 months.

Sourced from the Eden Valley, the 2016 The Chateau Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon boasts lovely notes of red currants and cherries on the nose. Rather than being a dark, brooding wine, it's more about lift and elegance. Yes, it's full-bodied, but the gentle brushes of vanilla and cedar enhance and support the red fruit flavors, bringing extra layers to the long, silky finish. It's already approachable, but it should age well. Drink 2018 – 2035
