- Tasting notes
|Appellation||Frankland River, Western Autralia|
|Grape Varieties||Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec (< 3%)|
|Bottle Size (Cl)||75cl|
|Type of Soil||
The vineyard sits on an undulating northern and eastern facing slope on ancient duplex soils of gravel and loam over a clay sub-soil.
This wine was fermented as long and slowly as possible, at temperatures not exceeding 30°C in open pot fermentation tanks that allowed the cap to be worked by plunging and gently pumping over. An extended maceration period allowed optimal colour, flavour and tannin extraction. It was aged in 500 litre French oak puncheons, this contributing textural complexity without compromising the opulent natural fruit flavours of the wine.
|Type||Rich, fresh, long finish|
|Food & Wine Pairing||
Vietnamese roasted duck breast with sauce, grilled or roasted red meat.
Dense plums, blackberries and hints of cedar and vanilla leap out of the glass. The rich firm palate is balanced with grainy mouth coating tannin and fresh sweet mulberries that glide across the mouth. Savoury black olives and refreshing acidity provide a very long finish.
