wine notes

2013 51 Cabernet Shiraz

The Fruit:

The 2013 vintage produced exceptional conditions with below average rainfall and a dry spring, resulting in low yields, yet near perfect flavour profiles. This is reflected in the overall quality of all our red wines which have outstanding aromatics, ripe fruit characters and perfectly integrated tannin structures.

The Winemaking:

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed, before fermentation could begin in stainless steel tanks for seven days. After malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to older American and French oak hogsheads for maturation for 12 months before blending and bottling.

2013 51 Cabernet Shiraz

The Comments:

The 2013 Cabernet Shiraz is deep cherry red in colour and has a bouquet of blackcurrant, cassis and spice with hints of oak. The palate is full of rich mouth filling fruit with silky soft tannins. Delicious with lamb, red meat and cheese.

      This wine displays a deep red colour, coupled with fragrant aromas of dark fruits. The palate is rich with ripe blackberry flavours and the soft tannins make this a very approachable wine perfect to drink now. It would be ideally suited to roast lamb or beef.
