Castelli Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$32.00 ea

Sourced from Frankland River and it shows the elegance and refinement of that region perfectly. Leafy blackcurrant aromas with traces of minerals and fine black olive. A dark chocolaty influence lingers in the background. Fine integrated palate structure with firmish supporting tannin. Elegance and style.

Best matched with the following food groups

The fruit of the Castelli Estate Cabernet Sauvignon underwent Pre-fermentation cold soaking for 10 days followed by a clean, warm (25-30°C) ferment.

Maceration was via twice daily pump-overs (using specialized gentle tannin extraction method) also three rack-returns during ferment. Yeast strains used were Clos and F15. Total time on skins was 26 days to allow for tannin development and balance. Fifteen months in 50% new and 50% one year old French oak barriques (predominately Bossuet and D’Aquitaine).

With a relatively mild winter and above average spring rainfall the vines entered the season with good soil moisture resulting in strong growth and good fruit set. This above average fruit set combined with strong canopies allowed steady ripening across all varieties enabling harvest to commence in late February and finishing mid April. The cool evenings and lack of extreme heat saw excellent flavour development. Yet another cracking vintage in the southern regions of WA making it eight years in a row.

The wine displays the classic purity of cool climate Cabernet with aromas of sweet blackberries and cassis with some overlaid liquorice and dark chocolate nuances. The palate is medium to full bodied and the fine layered tannins form a solid core that is perfectly balanced with the fruit flavour and oak. A small addition of Malbec to the wine gives some muscularity and flesh to the mid-palate and rounded support to the tannin backbone. This powerfully structured, well balanced wine will age gracefully over the next 10-15 years.
