Warramate Cabernet Sauvignon
All fruit at Warramate is hand-picked and delivered direct to the winery. The fruit was destemmed & crushed directly to a series of 1.5 to 2.0-tonne capacity open-fermenters. The vats were fermented on skins utilizing judicious hand-plunging at regular intervals in order to aid in the gentle extraction of colour, flavour & tactile palate components. Some post ferment maceration builds complexity into the wine.
Intense varietal nose in the bounds of youthful exuberance. Shows signature blackcurrant & sarsaparilla notes well supported by integrated leafy characters, synonymous with the variety. A medium-bodied “classic” claret style featuring a succulent, fruit-layered palate integrated with earthy complexity & fine dusty tannins. Juicy acidity underscores well-weighted voluminous fruit & a deep, long finish, combining generosity & concentration with finesse rarely found at this price point.
