PYRENEES RANGES VICTORIA
2017 'Estate Range' Cabernet Sauvignon
Lifted aromas of upfront liquor cassis, grilled herbs and nuances of fresh roast coffee beans and cinnamon infused ganache.
Rich palate of blackcurrant and plum with a touch of sweet toast menthol and molasses. This is an elegant and well layered wine, with balanced acidity
and supple tannins integrated from the refined French oak, finishing with
poise and a seamless length.
The Organic Estate vineyard provides all the fruit for this wine. Large static,
as well as the traditional open top fermenters, were both used to ferment on
skins over a period of eight to ten days, with regular pump-overs and head
plunging for maximum extraction of fruit flavours, colour and the delicate
fruit tannins. The wine was then transferred into French oak hogsheads and barrel aged for 11 months.
Classic grilled beef burger topped with melted Gruyère, Asian BBQ
lamb ribs or a mushroom stroganoff.
