Greenock Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
The wine is left to mature in barrels for a total of 27 months and is usually not filtered or fined prior to bottling. This wine contains the much sought after flavours of top Cabernets – mint, lavender, chocolate, berries and perfume – the perfect combination to produce an excellent example of this variety. The grapes are fermented in large, shallow open fermenters, pumped over, chilled and pressed through a basket press. The free run and pressings are kept separate through maturation and blended back together one week before bottling. The wine is racked into barrel to undergo natural MLF. The oak is all French shaved out seasoned second-hand hogsheads, with the better barrels being used for the pressings.
