Prison Block Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

From $120.00 per bottle

    Description

    Winemaking

    Hand harvested fruit was destemmed to obtain 100% whole berries and transferred either to a small open-top or large closed-top fermenter. The fermenting must was either gently plunged twice or pumped over once per day to extract colour and tannin. Total time on skins ranged from 19 to 29 days before the two wines were, pressed, settled and transferred to new 225-litre French oak barriques for maturation.

    The Wine

    A youthful, dark purple/magenta colour paves way to intense aromas of ripe blackberries and blackcurrants, complemented by a beautiful floral perfume and hints of fresh cedar, dried herbs and toast. The wine is rich and concentrated in the mouth yet retains the elegance, structure and restraint characteristic of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe black fruit flavours, savoury oak, fine-grained tannins and succulent acidity combine to produce an authoritative, vibrant and textural palate with an exceptionally long finish. A quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon of power and poise that will reward cellaring for up to 15 years.

    Drink 2020 to 2035.
