Pretty, inviting lifted varietal notes of blackcurrant, cassis and subtle menthol. As the wine opens up more savoury notes of dried herb, bay leaf and dark brambles. There is a hint of amarone-esque fruit concentration, a nod to the ripeness of some of our later harvested parcels.
An appealing, delicately balanced and finely structured wine, our 2016 Bittersweet is a generous, medium weight red displaying balanced, youthful fruit characters.
This is a classic example of high altitude, Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with the presence of 5% Merlot noticable in the voluptuous mid palate. Well structured tannins persist on the finish complemented by flavours of an almost tarry, sour black cherry and Christmas cake.
A vintage to challenge us, 2016 come on in a rush and a roar as our Riesling and Shiraz fought for space in the winery. Cabernet was afforded a reprieve courtesy of late season rain events that helped our dry grown vines push through to optimal ripeness in mid April.
Once again a smidge (that’s a technical term) of Merlot gives so much to the finished wine by way of rounding out the edges and softening the sometimes bombastic personality of Cabernet Sauvignon.
