Farm Hand Cabernet Sauvignon (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:||
Vineyards: The moderate, dry climate with very low rainfall during autumn and fertile soils is perfect suited to Organic Viticulture. The well established vines (up to thirty years of age) are planted widely apart for airflow to minimise disease pressure and minimal drip irrigation ensures low yielding fruit with rich flavours and varietal expressiveness
Winemaking: Fully de-stemmed before fermentation in a mix of open and closed tanks. The wine was primarily vinified without the influence of oak for maximum fruit expression before blending with a component aged in three and four year old French oak.
2021 Vintage: If 2020 was all about the heat, then 2021 will be remembered as the wet season. In many parts of Australia, t was unseasonably wet in winter but not at critical times to do damage nor impact the resultant ripeness of the grapes. A cool and dry summer meant even ripening was achieved between dry and rainy spells and the ensuing fruit quality was excellent and for once yields were up making for a bumper harvest in 2021.
Tasting Note: A fresh and vibrant organic cabernet bursting with black fruits, a slight herbal edge and notes of mocha oak. The palate is medium bodied with blackcurrant, olive and dark chocolate flavours matched by subtle notes of tobacco. The wine is full of intense fruit flavou before soft tannins and bright acidfity feature on a lingering finish.
