Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The inspiration for the Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon is taken from some of the great wines of Bordeaux. The aim is to use a number of techniques to emphasise complexity in a single vineyard wine and to make a wine that allows the fruit to shine; complemented by premium oak, while maintaining great structure and finesse. This is done by the addition of small amounts of Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec and the use of a number of different techniques during fermentation of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Our belief is that by doing all this we have made the best wine possible, and that it truly reflects the place in which it is grown.

"Medium to deep red/purple colour, bright and fresh, which also describes the nose, which is very aromatic and has charming floral violet overtones over raspberry and mulberry-like fruit. Hints of vanilla, briar and cedar as well. The wine is beautifuly flavoured and intense in the mouth, poised and elegant with tight, refined structure and good persistence. It's tightly coiled and compact, and promises to richly reward cellaring. 2020–2040"

The Wine Review, 23 May 2018
 
“Predominantly cabernet, but the rest of the Bordeaux varieties are in there as well. It adds up to a complex and complete wine of supreme elegance and refinement. Balanced and poised, striking the perfect balance of oak and tannin to harness the medium-bodied fruit. Lovely wine for medium-term cellaring.”

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The wine opens up with sweet black and red fruits of mulberry, black currant and cranberry, and a whiff of lavender. Medium bodied with soft velvety tannins, layers of fine fruit on the palate with chocolate and cedar notes from the oak. The finish is long and savoury.

Vineyard Notes
A solid winter of rain laid the foundation for good sub-soil moisture, which continued until late December. Below average rainfall continued through Summer and into Autumn, bringing very dry conditions and not too many hot days. Chardonnay yields were quite low, due to flowering conditions in early spring. However this was the opposite with Semillon and Cabernet Sauvignon resulting in some of the more generous yields we’ve seen.
