2017 Estate ‘la Gauche’ Cabernet Sauvignon

Regular: $30.00
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon 91% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc 2%
Vintage: 2017
Cellaring: 8-10 years
Alcohol: 13.5%
Tasting Notes: Classically fine, supple Yarra cabernet with a pristine, floral perfume of violets, translucently clear cassis, mulberry and plum aromas back by restrained cedary oak. It’s long and elegant, with a vibrant core of fruit deftly knit with tight-grained oak and underpinned by a pliant, gentle spine with genuine structure.94 POINTS · JEREMY OLIVER.
Winemaking Notes: De-stemmed to open fermenter, short cold soak, natural fermentation and pressed to French barrels (10% new), 10 months in French oak, racked once before bottling, no fining.
Viticultural Notes: Our Hill Road vineyard and winery is located at Coldstream, 40kms east of Melbourne in Victoria’s oldest grape growing region, the Yarra Valley. Grown on ancient, mountain derived sandy clay loams, these rocky soils combined with our forty year-old vines are at the heart of this wine.
