2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaking / Viticulture:
Planted in 1970, Tapestry’s own Bakers Gully Vineyard is the sole source for this wine.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon vine is traditionally low yielding contributing to the concentrated colour, aroma and depth of the wine. Following tradition the wine was matured in Premium French oak hogsheads for 18 months before bottling in early 2015.
Subtle mint, blackcurrant and supported by hints of eucalyptus, all typical characteristics of this variety in this vineyard. The oak influence adds a sweet spiciness.
Elegant soft pallet, cherry-like fruit characters, round middle with gentle acidity and fine tannins balancing the palate.
This wine is easily enjoyed now but as all traditional Cabernet Sauvignon’s will benefit from 8 to 10 years of maturation, after which time, it should be decanted prior to serving.
