2019 Double Happy Cabernet Sauvignon Blend


2019 Double Happy Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Single Bottle

“Superlative in precisely picked blackberries, mulberry and plum skin. Black raspberry and tulip with a medley of peppercorn, Kalamata olive, bay leaf and thyme. Cigar box and sweet chewing tobacco, mocha and potting soil. The wine flows seamlessly with sandy tannins, propulsive acidity and unification of oak. There is flavour for days here. Beautiful to behold.” 97points Shanteh Wale Halliday Wine Companion

Cabernet Sauvignon Blend
In 2019 we experienced a dry winter on the back of a dry 2018. Spring was warm with little rain, setting us up for another compressed harvest. In the vineyard focus was to ensure vines evaded the effects of heat stress; loose canopies to allow shading and judicious watering where possible. Due to the lack of rain throughout the season we experienced lower than normal crops, however quality was ensured with small berries and intensity of flavour across the board. A great year. The fruit is from a Block 2 at Koomooloo Vineyard - a selection of 3 different clones. 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 starts. Wine is pumped over an irrigator twice a day until fermentation is nearly complete, then plunged carefully for two weeks. Lightly pressed to barrel and then held for 20 months before going to bottle
"Deep red/purple colour. Fragrant and intense blackberry character palate with full-bodied, youthful, powerful but still with fine-grained tannins. Oak present but very Integrated and subtle." Philip Shaw
