Fraser Gallop Estate

Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

A complex wine with licks of dark chocolate powder and an infusion of blackberries. Lovely glassy acidity keeps the wine tightly wound. The mouth coating tannins provide persistence of flavour for a long elegant finish. A delicious wine worth cellaring for up to 10 years. 

Winemaking notes: Berries are completely de-stemmed and fully crushed. Inert gases are introduced to the ferment tanks prior to filling and then the fruit is inoculated with two different yeasts and co-inoculated with malolactic bacteria during primary fermentation. The berries are sequentially pressed straight to barrel after a moderately long fermentation period of 25 days followed by barrel to barrel racking.

Reviews and Awards

 

"Aromas of fresh herbs and leaves with berry-pastry notes, too. A very pure, vibrant and appealingly drinkable palate with a smooth, supple brand of tannin that is brimming with fresh blueberry and red-berry flavors. Drink or hold."

- James Suckling, 92 points
