Sevenhill St Ignatius Cabernet Merlot Franc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Malbec Clare Valley South Australia
A profound construct of noble red varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc drive the palate, tempered by the forward drinking Malbec and plum juicyness of Merlot. The story dates back to a deluge upon the Sevenhill vineyards in 1974. Winemaker emeritus Brother John May was not convinced that the crop was up to standard, so he blended all the grapes together. Impresario Doug Crittenden declared that it was the closest thing to Pomerol he had ever tasted! Named for the founder of the Jesuit Order, St Ignatius remains to this day a wine of immense stature.

While the inspiration for St Ignatius originates within the complex red blends of Bordeaux, the grape varieties are well suited to Sevenhill's cooler, late ripening conditions. The finished wine makes a compelling case for the world class quality of Clare Valley fruit. Vineyard management also contributes to low vigor in the vines and modest yields, achieving a rich wine of impressive concentration and depth. St Ignatius was vinified from the choicest parcels, by separate batches in open slate fermenters for up to a fortnight, capturing intense extraction of colour and flavour. After a traditional basket press, St Ignatius is treated to an extended maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
Malbec infuses St Ignatius with deep colour. Aromas of blackcurrant and chocolate over a subtle expression of oak. Merlot adds violet, Cabernet Franc contributes raspberries, each variety brings it's own character for a wine of great complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon offers intense dark berry flavours and firm, smooth tannins for a seamless finish.
