Cabernet Vintage Liqueur 2015

Our latest addition to our range, a luscious liqueur Cabernet.

Our Cabernet grapes were allowed to ripen under nets until reaching 16.5 degrees Beamé.  After crushing, the must was allowed to start fermenting and then fortified with a mixture of neutral and brandy spirit.  The wine was stored in oak for six month to gain further complexity before bottling.

The wine has a most vivid red-purple colour. The nose has intense sweet cherry and blackcurrant/elderberry aromas with some vanilla oak.  On the palate there is buckets of fruit and sweet unctuous mouth-feel. The acid and oak tannin finish prepare the palate for the next luscious sip.

Drink now for fruit flavour or age for up to 25 years for complexity.

The wine bottled into 375 ml dark-green bottles.

 


cb-2016-2

Fumé Chenin Blanc 2016

This wine is a lightly oaked dry table wine, made from the noble grape of the Loire Valley. It has a pale yellow colour derived from the oak.  The nose shows an intense fresh tropical fruit fragrance, complexed with vanillin notes.  Smooth creamy oak flavours and a generous mouth-feel, are followed by a lively fresh acid finish.

If you would like to add a lightly oaked wine style, other than Chardonnay or Semillon, to your wine flavour palette, this is the wine for you.


Cider 2x1Pink Lady Sparkling Cider 2008

Made from tree-ripened Pink Lady apples, this wine is bottle fermented and aged on yeast lees.
The wine opens with a lively persistent mousse and intense apple flavours waft out of the glass. The apple flavour is joined by fresh-bread yeast characters on the palate.
The residual sugar is complemented by a lively acid finish giving the drinker an experience of a traditional European style cider.
The cider is available in two styles, on yeast lees, where the earthy yeast flavours are retained, or a disgorged, Champagne-style with a crisp clean appearance. The disgorging process is time consuming and expensive. We believe both styles offer a different experience, some people will prefer one style over another, but both are delicious.
Disgorged : $20/bottle
On Yeast Lees: $15/bottle

The palate echoes the fruit characters on the nose, as well as showing lingering, firm fruit and oak tannin structure.
This wine shows up very well now when enjoyed with cheese or red meat and should reach its peak in 2017 and live for many years after that.

 CabSav2007Premium Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

The latest release is a well- balanced Cabernet.

It has intense black-currant characters on the nose, together with sweet vanillin oak.  The intense fruit persists on the palate, followed by a clean, fine tannin and acid finish. With age it will develop the complexity of the 2001.

This wine is designed to accompany roast meats and sharp cheeses.
