2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

28.00

The 2012 vintage was a very good one, despite heavy rain in late 2011 and again in early March 2012.  The season dried out, warmed up and the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon was picked on 6 April in excellent condition. Fruit was crushed the next day and underwent model fermentation. We pressed it about a week and a half later and began to realise we had something special here. After malo we racked it into fresh French oak barrels, where it spent the following 24 months.

We are absolutely delighted with the result and decided to bottle it under our "Reserve" label.  It has all the features of a first class cool climate Cabernet - black berry fruits, violets and mint on the nose; black currants, chocolate and cedar on the palate; and a long, smooth finish with soft grape tannins.  Ready to drink right now, but also aging very well with a long life ahead. 


12.7% Alc/Vol  Approx 7.5 Standard Drinks  Preservative (224) added.
