ESATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Sweet dark ripe fruits with blackberry and blackcurrant notes. Complex mulberry and raspberry fruit with tobacco and herbaceous fruit lift.
A very juicy front palate with a lovely and approachable full bodied, ripe palate balanced with elegant tannins. Full and rich palate weight with ripe tannins, length and structure.
Sourced from the Beresford Estate Vineyard in the cool sub-region of Blewitt Springs, parcels were harvested separately based on flavour and tannin ripeness. Due to the diligence of the dedicated vineyard team we are able to ferment these lovely little parcels separately in our small two and four tonne open fermenters. Further complexity is added with 20% of the blend receiving 3 years maturation in seasoned American oak hogsheads and 30% in new 3 year seasoned French oak. The balance of the blend is matured in 2 and 3 year old French oak hogsheads. No animal products used for fining or filtration. Vegan Friendly.
