CS Earl Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (6 x 750mL) SA

Description:

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

In South Australia we experienced above average temperatures during the growing season, particularly before Christmas. Fortunately during this period the occasional thunderstorm delivered much needed rains that refreshed the vines. During the final stages of the ripening period from the end of January into March, the weather was warm and dry, allowing the vines to ripen with an abundance of bright, fresh Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz flavours.

WINEMAKING/VITICULTURE

Fermentation was carried out in a combination of static and rotary fermenters under warm temperature conditions for a period of 6 days. This creates a good balance between extracting the appropriate tannin for wine structure and retaining fruit drive and aromatics.

TERROIR/SITE

Situated on the banks of the Murray River, the vineyards produce grapes perfect for fresh, varietal wines. Sandy soils of varying depths over limestone require careful water management as they readily dry out during the summer months. Supplementary irrigation strategies and canopy management are adapted to suit each individual site in order to provide a good balance of light and shade in the canopy and hence maximise fruit quality.
