Masterstroke

Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

The wine has delicious, haunting flavours of blackcurrant, mint and dark chocolate around a finely tuned and classy tannin structure.

More Information
Region Coonawarra
Colour At release, the wine is a dark ruby red with a bright red hue.
Nose The wine displays a distinctive regional expression of choc-mint along with cool climate aromas of violets, spice and cedar tobacco notes from French oak maturation.
Palate Deliciously haunting flavours of blackcurrant, mint and dark chocolate persist around a finely tuned tannin structure and a thoroughly enjoyable long and persistent finish.
Vintage Conditions The season for vintage 2020 in Coonawarra began well with good rainfall and the region was very fortunate not to have been affected by the bush fires that occurred throughout the 2019/2020 summer. Across the region, yields were down due to a cool spring; however, autumn ripening conditions were ideal and the fruit quality was high with great flavour concentration and lovely tannins.
Oak Maturation Following extended skin contact over a four week period, the wine was then matured in high quality, tight grained French oak barrels (40% new and balance 2 – 3 year old) for 18 months before being bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
