Ringbolt 21 Barriques Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

  • $30.00*

This vineyard in the Wilyabrup region was planted in 1970 with superior Cabernet Sauvignon clones, the vines are dry-grown and low cropped. The grapes are hand picked and de-stemmed into open fermenters, maceration was vigorous with regular flooding of the skins, giving controlled extraction of colour and tannin. After pressing,
the finished wine is matured for 16 months in French oak barriques, 35 percent of them new.
Deep magenta in colour. Intense aromas showing a meld of blueberry, musk, forest leaf litter and a touch of star anise. The palate opens with fresh red fruits building on a platform of ripe grape tannins to a savoury spice finish. The wine is outstanding now and with careful cellaring will improve over the next 10 years.
