The Evans & Tate team have called upon a harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon from a special block of vine at Wilyabrup. Grapes are all hand picked, crushed and destemmed for several days of cold soak. Batches are inoculated and thoroughly aerated over the course of ten days to optimize colour and ensure softness. The musts are pressed for completion of ferments, racked off lees into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques and hogsheads for malolactic and sixteen months maturation.
Deep garnet/ purple colour. Lovely bright red strawberry fruit followed by a hint of vanilla showing through on the nose, a balance of bramble/cassis and cherry/plum over supple influence of oak that seems just right. Juicy blood plum and pomegranate flavours, supported by the solid Cabernet structure. Medium bodied, the smooth yet rich, lingering finish is complimented by a length of stylish, firm and judicious tannins.
