    * Special Value – 2020 Halliday Wine Companion

    Deep crimson colour with a lovely perfumed lift of blackcurrants, spice and dark boysenberry aromas. A medium to full bodied wine with richness and roundness, finishing with structure and length. This classic McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable upon release but will mature well for at least another 7-10 years.

    Vineyard Information:
    From the Zerella Estate ‘Home Block’ vineyard, only a few kilometres east of the Aldinga coastline. Grown on an easterly aspect and at moderate yields (2.5t/acre), ensured the fruit ripened slowly, critical for producing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Winemaking Notes:
    Handpicked and sorted, 100% destemmed and cold soaked for 5 days at 8oC in open-topped fermenters. The fruit was left to naturally warm prior to starting fermentation. Hand plunged for 22 days before being pressed off to oak barrels, for maturation. A combination of new French oak (40%) and seasoned oak barrels were used to mature the wine for 15 months prior to being blended and bottled. No finings and minimal filtration were used in the winemaking / bottling process.

    Alcohol: 14.0%
    Production: 400 six packs
