Booths Taminick Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon (Glenrowan) (2014)
2014 Taminick Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
We have been growing Cab Sauv since 1919, only a minute amount of these vines still remain but more plantings of a modern clone were planted in the mid 80′s.
Low yields and completely dry grown vines, gave us fruit with good intensity. Gently picked and then destemmed to open fermenter were a specific yeast strain was added to enhance the varietal characters was used.
The wine remained on skins for 10 days before pressing, then matured in a selection of seasoned French and American oak for 14 months before a light filtration prior to bottling.
Dark black currant fruit, with hints of leafy cabernet characters combine with cedar and vanillin oak on the palate.
Enjoy with: Slow roasted lamb shoulder is an ideal match
