McGuigan Short List Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (6 x 750mL) Coonawarra, SA

Description:

The complexity of the brooding stone fruit and rich dark berry characters of the free-run juice displays chocolate mint and herbaceous aroma, delivering a slight earthiness and drying tannins for a long, lingering sensation.

The Coonawarra region consists of warm days and cool nights during the growing season. The winter is generally very wet and cool which allows the fruit adequate conditions to achieve optimum ripeness. The Coonawarra is a fantastic region known for growing Cabernet with rich fruit flavourand natural acidity. This Cabernet Sauvignon is the prime example of this. The fruit for this wine was fermented in 8 tonne open fermenters at cool temperatures for approximately 10 days. This process aids in flavour retention in the fruit. Once fermented the wine is allowed to go through malolactic fermentation and then transfered to new and old French Hogshead & American barrels to mature for 16 months before bottling.

Expert Reviews

Open vat fermentation for 10 days, maturation in new French and American oak for 6 months. The Shortlist series always offers up some exciting wines. Defiantly cabernet sauvignon, almost old school, in its herbal, grassy intensity. It's a celebration of a pared-back cabernet style with blackberry, bramble, briar and crushed raspberry leaf aromas. Oak sits patiently in the background across a linear palate. Just a touch of sour green leaf on the finish hits a rare off note. - Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion
