It's been a couple of years since we've had a Cabernet magnum available. We've been carefully cellaring this one for you. It's drinking beautifully now, but of course will cellar well for another 10-15 years.
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon uses fruit produced from 45 year old vines on the Follett family vineyard.
Traditional open fermentation was employed followed by maturation in French oak barriques for 20 months, prior to bottling. The wine displays lifted aromatics of black fruits and violets, along with some cedary oak nuances.
The concentrated palate has a lovely silky texture, showing chocolate and cassis flavours and a wonderfully long finish.
