Winemaker's Notes

An opulent and richly flavoured Cabernet Sauvignon. The Angas River Vineyard in Langhorne Creek is synonymous with producing Cabernet of exceedingly high quality. TASTING NOTES Full bodied with stunning aromas of spearmint and blackcurrant backed by a rich palate of plum and hints of mocha. .WINEMAKER COMMENTS: The Angus River Vineyard is situated on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, where the cool maritime climate allows for long even ripening. Clone LC-10 is planted in rich fertile soils of free draining, black, brown, sandy clay loam, this unique terroir produces some of Australia’s best Cabernet Sauvignon. The finished wine is aromatic and fruit driven. The firm tannins create a generous structure and body with good length of flavour. Harvested in the cool of the night, the fruit is crushed and chilled prior to transport to the winery. This slow drive enables subtle extraction of colour and flavours. The wine is cold soaked for 5 days, followed by a 14 day fermentation in open vats. It is then matured in 50% new and 50% seasoned American oak for 25 months. The finished wine is aromatic and fruit driven. The firm tannins create a generous structure and body with good length of flavour. Limited production of 220 cases.
