2021 Hills & Coast McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon
The Hills and Coast have a significant influence on the grapes grown on vineyards in McLaren Vale. The McLaren Vale region is moderated by cool ocean breezes from the coast that borders the region to the west and is also influenced by the gully breezes from the bordering Adelaide Hills to the East. This Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from a vineyard in McLaren Vale which sits an equal distance from the Coast and the Hills, creating a unique and distinctive microclimate.
Winemaking - A near perfect vintage in the McLaren Vale in 2021. A long, slow, cool vintage lead to great flavour development at low baumes whilst retaining great acidity. Fruit was selectively machine harvested in the cool of night, then destemmed and fermented on skins between 8-13 days. Once fermentation was complete the wine was gently pressed, following Malolactic fermentation the wine was filled to predominately French oak where it was matured for just over 18 months. (Approximately 20% new French Oak) Vegan friendly.
Tasting Note - Lovely deep crimson red in colour with aromas of lifted violets, red berries with a touch of spice and cedar. The long, elegant palate is layered with red currants, blackberries making it a beautifully structured medium to full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from the stunning 2021 vintage.
Food Suggestions – Lamb Tagine, Grilled Ribeye Steak with mushroom Cabernet sauce or Eggplant moussaka.
