Alessandro Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Alessandro Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

Langhorne Creek, SA

A rambunctious yet refined full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Hints of dark chocolate after dinner mints, sumptuous blood plum and mocha reveal a textured mouthfeel with a layer complexity of dark fruit and tannin. The finish is long and lingering.

$75

    Winemaker Comments: This single vineyard wine was sourced from the 44R vineyard which is situated on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. There the cool maritime climate allows for long even ripening. Clone LC-10 is planted in rich fertile soils of free draining, alluvial sandy loam over clay, this unique terroir produces some of Australia’s best Cabernet Sauvignon. Produced from an outstanding vintage, the wine is aromatic and fruit driven. The firm tannins create a generous structure and body with good length of flavour. Matured in 50% new and 50% seasoned American oak for 26 months. Limited production 220 cases. Pair This full bodied red needs full flavoured foods. Lamb, Red Wine and Rosemary Pie
