2014 Kangarilla Road Cabernet Sauvignon
Immediately the intoxicating fragrance of dark red roses followed by a joyful dance of sweet black berry conserve intermingled with orange blossom and nuances of marjoram. On the palate the dance continues with lifted bright red berry fruits and hints of spice, menthol notes and a delightful hint of violets. This is all enrobed in a seductive velvety mouthfeel and the gentle persistent tannins carry the flavours seemingly indefinitely.
The wine was fermented in open fermenters with floating cap and using gentle cap management techniques. The pressed wine was aged in a combination of new French and American oak complemented with an even mix of 1, 2, 3 and 4 year old oak.
