Long Rail Gully Murrumbateman Cabernet Sauvignon 2016/2017
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the long slow ripening of the grapes. The cool season produced ripe fruit with soft tannins bursting with varietal character.
A selected quality parcel of grapes was cold soaked and fermented in open top stainless steel fermenters and then left on skins for a total of 5 weeks to soften structure and add body to the finished wine.
The wine was then barrel aged for 12 months in a mixture of quality 100% French oak barrels.
The wine has a highly lifted nose of blackberry and blackcurrant. The 2017 is a rich Cabernet with fine tannins and a soft mouth filling palate.
Drink now or be rewarded with careful cellaring.
