Vintage 2016

VINEYARD REGION

South Australia

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The 2016 growing season was very dry, with significantly lower than average rainfall. A warm October advanced the season, resulting in early flowering, veraison and ultimately harvest. Despite this, mild February and March temperatures ensured length of ripening was normal, with adequate time for fruit to develop.

GRAPE VARIETY

Cabernet Sauvignon

MATURATION

18% was matured with oak for up to 3 months, adding texture and complexity to produce a balanced, integrated wine.

WINE ANALYSIS

Alc/Vol: 13.5% Acidity: 6.5 g/L pH: 3.61

PEAK DRINKING

Best enjoyed while young and fresh, or will gain further complexity with careful short term cellaring.

FOOD MATCH

Great with chargrilled steak with fat chips and garlic aioli or beef Stroganoff.

COLOUR

Deep red with a purple hue.

NOSE

Notes of plum, blackberry and cassis fruit with an undertone of leafy varietal character.

PALATE

Dark plum and blackcurrant fruit melds nicely with the subtle, integrated oak, creating a palate with rich flavours and a long structure. A hint of leafy Cabernet character adds freshness to the palate and the savoury oak gives a long finish.
