Reserve Cabernet Sauv 2017
Generous blackberry flavours supported by undertones of vanilla and spice.
NOSE & PALATE: This wine rewards with generous blackberry flavour harmoniously supported by undertones of vanilla and spice that linger on the palate.
WOOD MATURATION: The 2015 vintage was aged for 12 months in new and first fill 300-litre French oak barrels. 15% of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon vintage, aged for 24 months in new 300-litre French oak barrels, enhances this 2015 vintage. Bottled in 2016.
The Chardonnay Reserve grapes come from a selection of rows from the 5.5 hectare Chardonnay vineyard. The reserve selected rows are from the best canopy growth and natural leaf shading for the berry bunches to preserve their pristine fruit quality.
The wine has a lovely vibrancy along with fresh, appealing lime flavours that are now slowly developing into a subtle bottle aged bouquet of ripe apricots and butterscotch.
