Nugan Estate, Coonawarra Alcira Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon 75cl
This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the classic Coonawarra region of South Australia. Average temperatures during growth season saw a return to later harvesting times, resulting in well balanced ripeness, colour and tannin levels. After harvest, the grapes were crushed, yeasted and softly bag pressed in traditional style to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. The wine was then transferred to a combination of new and one-year old French and American Oak hogsheads for 16 months maturation prior to final blending and bottling.
Deep purple with vibrant hues. Enticing dark fruit aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry mixed with a hint of mint and eucalypt entwine gracefully with earthy tones and mixed spice. Intense flavours of dark berries, vibrant cassis fruit and velvety tannins beautifully melded with subtle oak accompaniment.
FOOD MATCH: Thyme and garlic roasted duck, warm lamb fillet salad or glazed veal medallions.
