2013 SELDOM INN CABERNET
This Cabernet is sourced from two vineyards in the Blewitt Springs region of McLaren Vale. The majority is from a 25 years old free draining sand over clay vineyard. Minimal intervention practiced, both in the vineyard and the winemaking. The wine was matured in 25% new French oak, the rest being in 1, 2 and 3 year old seasoned French oak. The use of 10% Petit Verdot was added for complexity and completing the streamlined palate. Aromas of red and blue fruits with floral notes and pencil shaving oak. The palate has all the characters of the nose but with texture. Rich fruit flavours with subtle influences of fine grained oak and classic Petit Verdot acid and tannin giving underlying structure.
