CW Winemakers Series 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Limestone Coast leading to harvest was cool to cold and dry with significant rain. Cool night-time temperatures, helped develop stable flavours and tannins. Winemakers were able to commence harvest with lower grape-sugar concentrations, with good parcels harvested before or at Easter. Showcasing new Reds typical of cooler vintages.
Sourced from selected Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards located in the premium growing area of Limestone Coast.
Fruit was fermented to dryness on skins. Following pressing, clarification and blending, the wine was matured on French oak for 12 months prior to bottling.
Delightful with your favourite slow-cooked red meat.
This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant fruit driven wine with abundant bright red fruit and a rich round palate. Lingering red berries and subtle oak complete this easy drinking style that is ready for immediate enjoyment.
