2016 “41 Across” Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
The Cabernet vines welcomed the late January rain like an old friend. The mild late season provided the perfect ripening conditions – each day a gentle morning dew enveloped the canopy and nurtured the berries to produce a wondrous matrix of beguiling flavour and mature tannins. The grapes were vinified on skins in small batch fermenters for 14 days to masterfully extract the tannins that are the backbone of this wine’s structural architecture. Matured in French oak for 12 months, this wine will age gracefully for many years to come. A classic you cannot help coming back to.
