Cabernet Sauvignon Limestone Coast
A profound yet approachable construct of Cabernet Sauvignon, assembled from parcels selected on the basis of prominent fruit character, refined tannins and exuberant varietal charm. Components grown to rust coloured Terra Rosa soils infuse the wine with rich berry flavours and dark chocolate tannins. Lost Block has been stylistically fashioned to remain true to the promise of fruit forward, early drinking Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from fine vineyards which can deliver the quality of fruit worthy of the Tyrrell Lost Block moniker. The clever design by mother nature of unique microclimes and terroirs imparts a synergy of regional complexities. Parcels are harvested, crushed and chilled before transport to Hunter Valley. Components are vinified and assembled by the Tyrrell winemaking team in a mix of open vats and potter fermenters at the Pokolbin wineworks. Lost Block is an essentially fruit driven Cabernet Sauvignon, its substantive tannins are tamed after eighteen months maturation in a selection of older, larger format 2500 litre French oak vats and newer 225 litre French oak barriques.

Aromatic bramble and blueberry fruit flavours are juxtaposed against firm tannins, the palate shows fresh fruit driven characters, structured, velvety and persistent. Perfect as aperitif or an accompaniment to pasta, pizza and red meat dishes.
