'Forgotten Barrels' Cabernet Sauvignon
Current Vintage: 2014
A single vineyard wine made back in 2014, amusingly a handful of barrels were stacked in the wrong place and eventually forgotten behind younger wines. They received a couple of years more barrel maturation than planned and boy was that a good mistake, it was clear we had to release this wine as a one off.
Dark fruit characters dominate the nose and lead into the very soft palate which benefits from the softening and development of flavours. Char oak, spice and velvety tannins round out a very easy drink.
This wine caused us to update our barrel stacking techniques but we've been rewarded with a mature and complex wine, unique in character and delicious to drink. Enjoy.
