Pyrenees Ranges Victoria
Moates Lane 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
Winestate Magazine 'Best Buys'
Aromas of blackcurrant, dark chocolate with a light background of toasty menthol and sweet liquorice.
Clean full-bodied flavours of ripe forest berries and redcurrants supported by smooth, velvety tannins and cherry notes on the finish.
Sourced from 18 years old vines planted on limestone and sandy gravel located on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 300 mt. The grapes were delivered to the cellar, early in the morning under cool conditions. After a gentle crushing and de-stemming, grapes were given a cold maceration treatment to maximize aromatic extraction.
Tasting Notes: A rich and soft Cabernet with some delightful earthy softness. French and American oak add complexity to this classic blend. Black currant and blueberry aromas blend with subtle cedar and tobacco on the nose. Dark fruits on the palate are balanced by sweet vanilla oak and the fine powdery tannins round out a complex yet deceptively easy drinking Cabernet Merlot. Ideal with a wide range of red meats from a rich boeuf bourguignon to a decadent cheese platter of soft and blue cheeses.
