The Hero Cabernet Sauvignon (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:
Region: Central Ranges, NSW
Summary: The Hero wines are hand-crafted from the best quality fruit sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, including McLaren Vale and the Barossa. With meticulous handling in the vineyard and winery, the pristine fruit will have less exposure to anything harmful that may normally require the addition of preservatives. Our wines are crafted to be brightly coloured, exotically fragrant, full-flavoured and critically, they sing without the addition of preservatives. Perfectly suited to many cuisines, these wines are also crafted to ensure they are suitable for Vegans.
Winemaking: Healthy and problem free fruit is selected in the vineyard and then picked in the cool of the night and then rushed to the nearby winery for a fast and focused vinification. Fermentation is cool in a closed static fermenter before a short maturation on lees and bottling.
Vintage 2022: A La Nina season brought much welcomed rain over the winter months and continued in providing a mild spring and summer. The cooler than average weather during harvest resulted in a longer ripening period which facilitated fragrant and elegant fruits in red wines and a seamless acid and tannin balance.
Tasting Note: A fresh and pure tasting Cabernet showing poise and structure. On the nose classic aromas of blackcurrant with a hint of dried herbs and cocoa. The palate is bright with a core of vibrant black fruit that is seamless and satisfying balanced by firm tannins and clean acidity. Pair with lamb shanks
