2019 Coliban Block Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Coliban Block Cabernet Sauvignon

Regular price $35.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from a south facing block on the Campaspe River, just north of Redesdale, in a slightly cooler southwest corner of the Heathcote region.  Harvested by hand in mid-March, to capture the rich black-current flavours, which are characteristic of the 2019 Vintage.

Post fermentation and a short period of stabilisation in stainless steel, the wine was racked into a combination of French (55%) and American (45%) oak Barriques.  All barrels went through a secondary fermentation during the Spring of 2019.  The wine was not fined before bottling.

This wine displays a stunning moody austerity, dark stone fruit character and an elegant mid-palate with a clean, lingering finish. A lighter style Cabernet Sauvignon, with traditional dry tannins.
