Cabernet Sauvignon 'Western Australia'
Cabernet Sauvignon 'Western Australia', Point Ormond
Margaret River is Australia’s most well known region for the noble Cabernet Sauvignon varietal. Fruit for this wine was crushed and de-stemmed then fermented for 5 – 7 days. Approximately 20% of the components experienced a pre-fermentation cold soak, with another 30% being left for a period of extended maceration on skins for 28 days. The various batches underwent malolactic fermentation in tank and barrel before 14 months maturation in a selection French oak barriques (20% new oak).
