Viticulturist Notes
The grapes for this Cabernet were picked and crushed during the cool of night, thus ensuring the retention of varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout, all of which help to create the signature McPherson Cabernet style. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction. Softer tannins are also a result of this process, while careful attention was paid to the oak selection for the Cabernet. This wine was aged on French oak for approximately 8 months, giving the wine a noticeable, but not an excessive, oak influence. The inclusion of some central Victorian fruit into the blend has boosted both the colour and the intensity of flavour.
Wine Harvest Notes
It’s a wrap for another season and once again Mother Nature has dished us out a few challenges! Due to an extremely hot January vintage began a week or two later than normal, and once we got picking whites and reds rolled in at a cracking pace. White yields were lower than anticipated whilst reds were on par with previous years. Overall it was another great vintage with bright and fresh whites and beautifully coloured, rich reds.
Food Recommendations
Try this wine with a hearty barbequed steak, or a rich, spicy tomato based pasta dish such as Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagne.
