2010 Majella Cabernet Sauvignon
Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
Cellaring: 10 years
Winemaking Notes: Majella Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in both static and rotary stainless steel fermenters with fermentation being completed in 300 litre barrels and the wine was then aged for a further 18 months in new and second use French oak hogsheads. All Cabernet Sauvignon parcels are kept seperate to access batch quality prior to blending and bottling off site.
Vintage Conditions: 2010 Coonawarra vintage will be remembered, not only as one of the earliest, but also for being amongst the best. The near ideal weather conditions of below average rainfall and above average temperatures in Coonawarra leading up to harvest were conducive to an early start and excellent quality.
Tasting Notes: A deep aubergine purple red with a ruby hue, with blackcurrants and vanilla on the nose. The palate is dense licorice with plum fruit flavours and chalky tannins.
