Waterford Estate 2005 Auction Reserve BB

Cabernet Sauvignon 80%, Merlot 10%, Malbec 10% Individual vineyard blocks were fermented separately. This blend was made in winter 2005 and allowed to age as a unit for 23 months in tight grained French oak barrels. After a single egg white fining prior to bottling, the wine has been allowed to age another 4 years in bottle. 70 cases of this wine were sold at the 2009 Auction. Tasting note: This wine shows the classical Helderberg character of Cabernet Sauvignon with distinctive earthy tones that are laced with hints of graphite and violets. The distinctly dry tannins that are polished make for a long finish on the palate. Drink 2015 – 2020.
