Frankland Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Frankland Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Of the red wine varieties grown in the Isolation Ridge Vineyard the evidence suggests Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the most sensitive to the vineyard environment. This is reflected in wines with distinctive earthy, mineral qualities and rich, supple textured flavours.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec organically grown fruit. Rich mixed berries and hints of cedar and herbs leap out of the glass. The palate is complex and focused balanced with fresh sweet mulberries and grainy mouth coating tannins that glide across the mouth. A classic cool climate Cabernet. This elegant yet opulent Cabernet reflects both the ideal 2015 vintage conditions and the meticulous care taken in the vineyard and the winery.
Vineyard Notes
Fruit for this wine was sourced from mature vines in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. The vineyard sits on an undulating northern and eastern facing slope on ancient duplex soils of gravel and loam over a clay sub-soil. It is farmed using organic viticultural practices and this is reflected in the depth and concentration of fruit flavours. The vines are trained on a Scott Henry trellis system to enhance sunlight penetration of the canopy and optimize ripening conditions.
Winemaker Notes
This wine was fermented as long and slowly as possible, at temperatures not exceeding 26°C in open pot fermentation tanks that allowed the cap to be worked by plunging and an extended maceration period allowed optimal colour, flavour and tannin extraction. It was aged in 500 litre French oak puncheons, this contributing textural complexity without compromising the opulent natural fruit flavours of the wine.
