CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2007
VIGNERON GEORGE HEYDON’S COMMENTS
An excellent, clear crimson purple colour.
The nose is intense, rich and complex, with dark black fruit to the fore and a hint of menthol, herbs and spicy cigar box.
A classic Cabernet palate, mouth filling, rich blackberry fruit, cooling mint, perfectly integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish.
Another beautifully articulated Cabernet.
The fruit was handpicked on 11th March 2007.
Open fermented, gently pumped over and skins contact before being transferred to barrel for final fermentation, adding complexity.
Maturation for 20 months in 100% French oak barriques, 60% new and 40% second use.
Alc/Vol: 13.4 %
Acidity: 7.5 g/l
