Edgebaston Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2011

Grapes from a single clone making up 8 rows of one of our Cabernet Sauvignon blocks were vinified separately in a 2 ton open fermenter. Pigeage took place three times daily and the wine was pressed off to barrel to complete fermentation and malolactic fermentation in new French oak. Maturation in oak took 18 months. Tasting Notes: The dark centre of this Cabernet Sauvignon shows the concentration of colour extracted from the small berries during punch-down. Dark cocoa, cinnamon and blackberry notes on the nose carry to the palate where the structure and depth of flavour is evident. Ripe boysenberry, blackberry and a touch of vanilla spice continue onto a long balanced aftertaste. This wine will benefit from and reward maturation and decanting before serving.
