Cabernet Sauvignon

MT Barker 2014

Vintage Conditions
In 2014 Mt Barker experienced a mild spring, followed by a warm, dry summer. Ideal
ripening conditions with even day temperatures produced healthy canopies carrying
medium yields. This vintage provided intense fruit flavours showing bright cassis and cigar
box.
Vineyard
The grapes for this wine were harvested off the Rocky Horror vineyard
that is well named as the vineyard is planted on an extremely rocky
slope. The vines on this vineyard struggle to grow many grapes and
therefore crops are low but flavours are intense and the crop ripens fully
in most years. The 2014 vintage was a warm one in Mt Barker and
produced flavoursome grapes in an exceptional year.
Winemaking Notes
The grapes were fermented in a small fermenter and hand plunged three
times a day to extract soft tannins and wonderful fruit flavours. In tank
Malo-lactic fermentation followed by aging in Fine French Oak, 45% New.
The wine has been minimally handled to retain the integrity of fruit and
the complexity that fine oak imparts. The characters of blackcurrants,
cigar box and black olive are enhanced by the fine French Oak. On the
palate it shows the same dusty fruit flavours, it is full flavoured, medium
bodied and has a backbone of fine tannins with a long finish. Cellaring
potential 7+ years
