Simon’s Wine Craft Cabernet Sauvignon


This is a stunning wine. It has beautiful flavours of black cherry, black currant and raspberry with hints of cedar and vanilla from the oak. It spent about 15 months in a mix of French oak and old American oak barrels. The tannins are soft and subtle and well integrated. Enjoy now or over the next few years. Take advantage of those fresh fruit flavours

Notes from the winemaker

Simon says; “All grapes were crushed and destemmed. Fermentation was kept cool (20 to 26*C, typically reds are fermented at 28-30*C). Having a cooler ferment helps to retain fresh fruit flavour. The yeast strain used was from Bordeaux and is known to bring out the fruit flavours of Cabernet. After fermentation the wine spent 14 days on skins (called extended maceration). This process helps to soften the tannins. The wine was then pressed and racked into a mix of newer French oak barrels and old (~ 6 year old) American oak barrels. It was aged for 15 months before being blended and bottled
