Tim Atkin Rating: 93/100. The Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is sophisticated and full-bodied. On the nose one detects an earthiness and a hint of seaweed, yet with a freshness and notes of cassis. The wine has a strong character displaying aspects of mineral, rock pool and iodine. The tannins are tight and fresh with a linear profile.
The grapes were hand-picked and cold soaked for up to 14 days. Long slow, natural fermentation of up to 40 days took place with one punch down by hand per day. Natural malolactic fermentation occurred in the barrel. The wine was matured in custom-made new oak barrels for up to 16 months, after which the different blocks and clones were blended and bottled with minimum filtration.
Can age up to 20 years in the right optimal storage conditions.
Suggested food pairing: roasted pork or lamb shoulder, Côte de Boeuf, cheese
