Robert Bowen Mount Barker Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (6 x 750mL) WA

Description:

Vintage Conditions

In 2014 Mt Barker experienced a mild spring, followed by a warm, dry summer. Ideal ripening conditions with even day temperatures produced healthy canopies carrying medium yields. This vintage provided intense fruit flavours showing bright cassis and cigar box.

Vineyard

The grapes for this wine were harvested off the Rocky Horror vineyard that is well named as the vineyard is planted on an extremely rocky slope. The vines on this vineyard struggle to grow many grapes and therefore crops are low but flavours are intense and the crop ripens fully in most years. The 2014 vintage was a warm one in Mt Barker and produced flavoursome grapes in an exceptional year.

Expert Reviews

Such a refined and stylish cabernet from Mount Barker. It shows the suppleness of fruit from this region yet there is power and fruit concentration supported by firmish tannins and plenty of oak. The tannins have a decent grip in them. Quite a dry finish with that wet cement character you sometimes get in cabernet. Built with some extended cellaring in mind, yet it is easily drinkable now. - 94/100 CELLAR 15 years Winelinx

This takes a bit of getting used to as the sweet-savoury oak and sweet-sour-ripe fruit are having a tussle, time might help. In the midst, satsuma plums and currants gambol with pimento, lavender and woodsy spices on a full-bodied yet taut palate. - 92 Points- Silver, Jane Faulkner

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

The grapes were fermented in a small fermenter and hand plunged three times a day to extract soft tannins and wonderful fruit flavours. In tank Malo-lactic fermentation followed by aging in Fine French Oak, 45% New. The wine has been minimally handled to retain the integrity of fruit and the complexity that fine oak imparts. The characters of blackcurrants, cigar box and black olive are enhanced by the fine French Oak. On the palate it shows the same dusty fruit flavours, it is full flavoured, medium bodied and has a backbone of fine tannins with a long finish.
