2017 Charles Melton Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML

$55.90

Sold in cartons of 6

Superb oak, not overpowering, but cedary and complex from fully seasoned uniquely coopered timber. This is overlaid with some dark pastille aromatics and spicy dark marella jube sweetness. A rich, but not massively constructed wine with a balanced palate of fine proportions.



V I N T A G E
A bountiful winter rainfall pattern heralded in vintage 2017.
Good falls kept on right through Christmas into the New Year
ensuring excellent soil moisture levels and solid crop levels. A
dry mild harvest period was ideal with very little heat, clear
days and cool nights.

S T Y L E
A lovely amalgam of cedar & five spice on the nose. A mid
weight, sweet entry into the mouth with a touch of fine acidity
apparent. Will fatten and richen with time, but a fine example
of the finesse and elegance of the 2017 vintage.

V I N I F I C A T I O N
Whole berries from our oldest estate grown Cabernet block
were tipped directly from the sorting system of the machine
harvester bypassing the crusher. An 8 day maceration followed
before the free run and pressings were run into 100% new
French oak barriques where the malo-lactic fermentation took
place. The wine remained on lees with monthly battonage for
30 months before settling prior to bottling
