Waverley Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2014

Standard organic practices were used preparing the grapes for harvesting and irrigation was given to the vines as needed through our moisture monitoring system. Summer canopy management was done to the vines to allow enough sunlight and air flow through the vineyards for correct ripening of the grapes. Left on the vines to fully ripen, the grapes were hand-picked and sorted in the vineyards.

59% Cabernet Sauvignon
38% Shiraz
3% Mourvedre

Grapes were cooled overnight before de-stemming and the fruit was then gently crushed. The grapes were cold macerated for 5 days to extract all the soft ripe flavours from the skins. After removing the skins, fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation then followed on the separate components of the blend to convert the lactic acid to soften the wines.

Six months maturation of the wine took place in 100% new oak, two thirds French oak and one third American oak.

Deep ruby centre with bright red rim. Black cherry and raspberry aromas denote its fruitiness which is rounded off by subtle spicy and vanilla notes from the oak. On the palate the wine has a soft, but full, entry with notes of plums and cherries. The smooth tannins let the taste of the wine stay in the mouth. Very adaptable wine that can be enjoyed at a light lunch, dinner or BBQ. A wine that must be shared.
