Summary: Crimson Monster creates monstrously rich and full-bodied wines sourced from low-yielding, established vineyards located in some of South Australia’s finest regions such as McLaren Vale and Coonawarra.
Thick gnarled old vines produce tiny berries of incredible intensity that is harnessed by careful winemaking and partial maturation in large seasoned oak barrels to deliver wonderfully approachable, opulent and mouth-coating flavours.
Winemaking: Sourced from two vineyards that were planted with one on black and the other on red soils of the famed Coonawarra. The wine spent lesser time on skins that usual and following a cool and uneventful primary fermentation the wine was pressed off into a combination of stainless steel and second-use French oak for maturation where it was held for a period of 10 months prior to blending and bottling.
Vintage 2021: An exceptional vintage with ideal growing conditions and outstanding quality fruit! A later start to the vintage due to a mild summer facilitating a longer ripening period and a lovely balance in red wines. Dry conditions through summer resulted in small berries and thick skins in reds. Intense aromatics and bold flavours are a characteristic of the 2021 Coonawarra vintage.
Tasting Note: This is a Cabernet Sauvignon that is ready to go now. Intense fruit character partnered with softer and supple tannins not usually found in Cabernet wines enables brilliant drinking from day one. Blackcurrant, plum and dark chocolate flavours are prominent on the palate with subtle cedar-wood and spice in support. Drink on its own or with any red meat dish.
