Coonawarra, Alcira Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

Coonawarra, Alcira Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the classic Coonawarra region of South Australia. The 2015 vintage in Coonawarra was a variable season including an extreme heat wave during march which led to an early start to harvest, resulting in fruit reaching remarkably maturities, colour and tannin levels. After harvest, the grapes were crushed, yeasted and softly bag pressed in traditional style to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. The wine was then transferred to French Oak for 14 months maturation prior to final blending and bottling.
