Clare Valley lies just over 100km north of Adelaide, one of the oldest wine regions in Australia. Hugh Reilly established his homestead here in 1856, it is still headquarters to Reilly Wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from splendid, dry grown blocks on the St Clare Vineyard at Leasingham, fasidiously cropped to a lean 2.0T/acre. Terroir and climes are ideal, long hot summer days and cool nights serve to fully ripen the grapes while the skins develop fine tannins. Grapes are hand picked, inoculated to AWRI 796 yeasts and treated to a traditional vinification in open fermenters for ten days. The completed wine is matured eighteen months in a selection of fine French oak hogsheads.
Bright scarlet red. Rich aromas of blackcurrants and cherry. The palate shows juicy dark fruits with a hint of vanilla followed by mints and dark chocolate. Rich sweet summer fruit flavours, overtones of sweet oak and a full mouthfeel which lingers effortlessly. Velvety textures are followed by generous tannins on a lingering finish.
