2001 Sandpiper Cabernet Sauvignon

Comments

Ripe Berries, whiffs of raspberries and blackcurrants - great varietal definition. Juicy tannins lead the palate to a spicy round finish encapsulating layers of fruit flavours.

Vinification Notes

Crushed and de-stemmed into closed fermenters. Maximum fermentation temperature between 25°C - 27°C. Pumped over 2 x per day, incorporating oxygen. Pressed using a bag press. Pressings kept separate from free run and then fined and re-blended back to the free run.

Maturation

French and American oak were used to age the wine for 14 months.
