2020 Langtons Yarra Valley Wine Show
BEST SINGLE VINEYARD RED
BEST CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Dark purple in appearance, A classical Yarra Valley Cabernet nose - briar, cedar, blackcurrants, blood plum, violets with hints a red currant fruit and fresh tobacco leaf. The palate is evenly layered and textural with mid-palate weight and depth. Brightly fruited with cassis and plums with a hint of raspberry with soft savoury tannins and a graphite note that refreshes and adds to the long finish. A smooth, fragrant and mouth coating wine that is medium bodied.
All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to gently destemming to fermenter. After a three day cold maceration, fermentation commenced and peaked at 30°C. Pump-overs were conducted twice per day, and post ferment, the wine remained on skins for an additional four weeks prior to pressing. The wine then spent 15 months in French oak barrels maturing before bottling in the winter of 2019
Vintage - A cool wet spring and flowed into a mild summer and dry autumn. Ripening conditions were ideal – long and slow, resulting in wines with outstanding purity and balance. A classic Yarra Valley vintage.
Vineyard - The original Oakridge Vineyard (now Five Oaks) – Seville / Soil – Red volcanic / Vine age – planted 1978
