Tokara Auction Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the two consistently best performing vineyards on Tokara. The grapes were hand-picked at optimal ripeness from the 22nd and 26th March at sugars of 25 and 26 degrees brix and acidities of 6.5 and 5.0g/l respectively. The grapes were placed in a cold store overnight and then de-stemmed and sent across a sorting table before being crushed directly into large wooden fermenters where natural fermentation occurred. The wine spent a total of twenty-two months in 67% new French oak. Tasting Notes: This wine displays a dark garnet colour and deep plum colour on the rim. The nose is that of dark cherry and black currant fruit with intense aromas of mocha, cedarwood and fennel bulb. The palate is full and rich with dark fruit and heady notes. The wine finishes with sweet fruit notes and is intensely long. This wine will start drinking well from 2015 and will mature well for another 10 years till 2025.
