Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon
Terra Rossa CABERNET SAUVIGNON
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were picked in the cool of the night and were at perfect ripeness. The fruit was in great condition and showed excellent varietal character.
Following a mild growing period the grapes matured in late February with good colour and flavour. Immediately after harvest the grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and pumped into tanks for fermentation. Once fermentation was complete the skins were pressed and the wine transferred to French oak of varying age for maturation. After 6 months maturation the wine was blended and bottled.
This rich and soft Cabernet Sauvignon has expressive flavours of cassis with rich chocolate and velvety tannins. Mulberry fruit nuances with a hint of French oak add to the complexities of this wine.
