SKU: WVAORDCAB21
A variety that has become a real star of the Clare Valley’s portfolio due to the region's cooler ripening temperatures and elevated topography. Blended from three separate and unique sites across the Clare Valley. Very traditional winemaking practices were the order of the day; open fermentation, hand plunging, basket pressing to new and older small French oak casks. All parcels remained separate until the final blend was assembled, bottling occurring both unfined and unfiltered. Pairs perfectly with Rosemary braised lamb shanks.

”91 Points - Winepilot”
– For many, Riesling aside, Cabernet is the star of the Clare Valley – although there are always those who’ll take up that debate. This example is a blend of a trio of sites from across the region and the cooler vintage suits the style. The grapes were hand plunged during fermentation before basket pressing to a mix of new and older French oak. This is a vibrant purple hue. Classic Cabernet notes are on show here, blackberries, cassis, leather, tobacco leaves and chocolate. Formal in structure, we see notes of coffee beans emerge more on the palate. A wine with firmer tannins, giving good grip. There is length and drive here, but the wine which really needs a couple of years to hit its straps, after which it will then provide good drinking for a decade. A good value Cab
