2016 BackVintage Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon - New!
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The 2016 growing season was drier than average, and careful irrigation to optimise flavour development worked very well.  Harvest was two weeks earlier than the long term average, the result of a warmer than average October which advanced the whole season.  There was a cooler finish with mild ripening conditions.

The Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2016 vintage has full palate richness whilst being medium bodied with fine tannins and excellent colour.  The Cabernet Sauvignon (94%) was sourced from 100% Coonawarra Cabernet parcels. The final blend included 6% McLaren Vale Cabernet Franc.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Deep purple red

Nose
Sweet blackberry and blackcurrant and a hint of crushed leaf. Subtle spice and vanilla from oak

Structure / Palate
Medium bodied and stylish, yet with good depth of dark berry flavour. Fine tannins, finishing with good length.

This wine has red and dark berry flavours, subtle spices from oak and a medium bodied, stylish structure.  It finishes with firm, balanced tannins.  Enjoy it now with lamb and other flavoursome dishes or cellar until at least 2022 for greater complexity.
