2017 Double Happy Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Single Bottle
“A vibrant, still youthful wine. Purple colour with red edges. Violets, dried red roses, blackcurrants and cranberries - elevated, vivacious aromatics. Softly cored; dark soy and herb stalks, then beautifully softly-fleshed. Tannins are fine-grained and poised. Ultra-classy.”*

Cabernet Sauvignon Blend
The growing season started with a record wet winter. Spring was great, resulting in a good even bud burst and flowering. A record hot January and early February 2017 resulted in an early start for chardonnay harvest in late February. The seasons rain and cool weather in early March combined with excellent dry conditions allowed the red varieties to start the harvest mid-April. Resulting in moderate crops and produced excellent quality fruit. The fruit is from a Block 2 at Koomooloo. The Fruit is handpicked and chilled overnight and then destemmed (1-2T open fermenters). It is held for about 3-4 days before spontaneous fermentation. Wine is pumped over an irrigator twice a day until fermentation is nearly complete, then plunged regularly for two weeks and then lightly pressed to barrel; held for 18months before going to bottle.
The wine has a deep red/purple colour. A beautiful blend of strong varietal fruit and quality oak, intense cassis fruit. Strong intense fruit flavours, blended with fine oak; a combination of fruit and oak tannins. A wine that will age for a substantial time, continuing to complex and integrate. A beautiful varietal expression. PS
