Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek South Australia
Mulberry Tree is the essential Langhorne Creek Cabernet, named after an ancient mulberry tree growing right in the middle of the vineyard. Fruit is treated to the traditional regimen of open vat and barrel ferments, achieving a deliciously dark berry wine, redolent with hints of eucalypt and mint, supported by chewy, toothsome tannins. Enjoy alongside your favourite cut of lamb or char grilled steak.
Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from an ancient site, planted to vines eighty to ninety years of age. Grapes are destemmed and crushed into traditional open fermenters, pumped over four times daily throughout a fortnight's vinification. Batches are drained and pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic and a year's maturation. Alcohol 14.0%
A deep crimson colour with robes of purple. Fragrant mixed berry characters balanced with dark chocolate and violet bouquets. Silky smooth with juicy sweet fruit flavours and fine chalky tannins. Spice box and cedar, blackcurrants and tobacco in a medium to full bodied wine. The palate is plump and fleshy, rich and round, yet displays elegance, warming acids and a long, lingering finish.
