Jacaranda Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Currently out of stock
Each batch is destemed into small static fermenters and inoculated with a neutral strain of yeast to maximise the pure expression of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Ferments were maintained at moderate temperatures ranging from 15C to 28C over a period of fifteen to seventeen days, maximizing colour, flavour and tannin extraction. Four of the choicest vineyard parcels, selected on the basis of powerful fruit character and profound structure are matured separately for twenty one months in a selection of the finest coopered, completely new French oak hogsheads. A close scrutiny of individual barrels determines the final assemblage, only the best components are included. Alcohol 14.4%
An iconic Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the very best Coonawarra vineyard sites, picked at optimum flavour ripeness following repeated vineyard inspections by the winemakers. Rich and dense, structured, varietal and ripe, Jacaranda should be decanted before service.
Full depth crimson ruby. Richly concentrated and intensely varietal, showing dense cassis and blackberry aromas, dark chocolate, tobacco leaf and cedar oak contributing complexity and support. A powerful and tightly structured wine, full bodied showing intense cassis, black fruit, aniseed and spice, persistent, finely grained oak tannins and balanced acidity, leading to a long, savoury finish.
