2017 Passel Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Margaret River, WA
Medium to full bodied with fine-grained tannin, velvety smooth with intense fruit flavours of red and blue berries.
Tasting Notes: Ruby red in colour, with blue flecks. A bouquet of violets, mulberry, red cherries and lifted floral aromatics. Fine lines of pristine red fruit tannin introduce a savoury palate laced with textures of graphite, blue berries and subtle notes of cedar. Seamless and complete, the palate eases into a primal finish of darker fruits, elevated by finer afterthoughts of cherry pip and plum blossom. Drink now for freshness or be rewarded with cellaring.
Winemaking Notes: The fruit was harvested and berries just split. After a cool 14-day ferment on skins with multiple, yet gentle daily pump overs, the wine was gently separated from the skins and transferred straight to French Oak barriques, 35% of which were new where the wine was matured for 10 months.
