Grace Farm cabernet sauvignon 2013 ($30)

INTRO

The famed Wilyabrup duplex soil profile in which the cabernet sauvignon is planted provides Grace Farm with the unique ability to grow the fruit with minimal water while retaining a balanced, healthy vineyard canopy. Maximum flavours are achieved this way. By nursing this fruit through ten days of fermentation, taking care to maintain an elegant tannin structure, and then combining this with a 12-month maturation in well-seasoned French oak, the cabernet sauvignon is given the chance to speak for itself. Typical flavours of cassis and earth are derived from the clone and soil type, and the dry-grown fruit gives a depth of flavour that is unique to this sub-region.

Wine Guide 2016

Predominantly cabernets with a nine per cent mix of malbec and petit verdot. This is gorgeous and continues the excellent form of cabernets from this impressive producer. Highly scented perfumed notes on the nose. On the palate there is more substantial elements at play as a result of this warm vintage. Firmish tight tannins, fine grained oak and plenty of deep powerful fruit intensity. Excellent wine for cellaring. CELLAR 10 years
