2017 Upwelling Cabernet Sauvignon
Style: Rich and generous.
The inspiration: Those in the know realise that the best places in the Limestone Coast for Cabernet are not where you might first expect.
Selected from secret spots around the region which might vary from season to season. The focus is on varietal expression and the notion that Cabernet should taste like Cabernet. We target vineyards where fruit is round and the natural tannins, fine and soft. It’s in French oak for 12 months with the aim of creating an approachable style of Cabernet with racy, red fruit.
Cellaring: This wine is drinking well now however over the next ten years it will become softer and more savoury if you prefer an aged style.
Food pairing: Skip the chilli with this wine and instead opt for roasts and bbq cuts – lamb is especially perfect. A great wine for roast night with all the trimmings.
