2018 ‘The Royals’ Cabernet Sauvignon

Silver Medal 2020 James Halliday Australian Cabernet Challenge

Composition
100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Note
Aromas of blackcurrant, cedar, leather and mushroom. These characters and earthy tones also carry through to the palate which is dominated by black fruits, leather and spice. Fine grained chalky tannin contribute to lingering finish.

Winemaking
Optimal growing conditions in 2018 lead to a vintage of high yields and sensational fruit quality. The fruit was hand picked, crushed and transferred to open top ferment bins where it was hand plunged. Extended skin contact for 28 days post ferment to add to the tannin structure. Basket pressed to French oak, 40% new, where it matured for 18 months. We used 40% Clone 337 from our new Clonal block for the first time for our 2018 vintage.

Cellar
2030

Food Match
Our favourite way to enjoy The King is with a huge pile of meaty marinated ribs and a cracking game of footy on the TV. Perfection.
