Sandalford Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Sandalford Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This is classic Margaret River Cabernet. It’s an elegant wine, with sweet berries up front mixed with savoury spice flavours of cinnamon, mocha and cedar. There’s also hints of juniper. The tannins are silky soft and lush, they combine with the acid to give this wine a wonderful structure and length. This wine is complex and will reward your patience over the next ten + years with proper cellaring, if you can wait for that long.

Winemaker comments

The grapes for this wine are exclusively from our 40+ year old Wilyabrup Estate Vineyard in Margaret River. After crushing and de-stemming the grapes underwent fermentation in small 5-10 tonne fermenters. The traditional method of pumping over was used during this time to optimise colour, flavour and tannin extraction. Near the end of fermentation, the wine was pressed, with the free run and pressings kept as one, and inoculated for Malolactic Fermentation (MLF) with selected bacteria. At the completion of MLF, the wine was racked and transferred to French oak barrels (25% new) for 14 months, before being blended together and then bottled.
