2021 Carrodus Cabernet Sauvignon


Blackcurrant fruits, iodine interest, bay leaf lift, a wonderful energy, fruit purity and precision. A youthful wine with vibrant acidity, fruit volume, a ripe and fine tannin framework that supports the fruit intensity.

Hand harvested, destemmed and individual berry sorted before being crushed into our Yarra Yering 600kg open fermenters. Hand plunged twice daily until fermentation is complete, some extended time on skins until tannins soften before deciding to press based on taste. Gravity filled to French oak Bordeaux shaped barrels completing malolactic fermentation in the cool underground cellars. 40% new oak, 15 months maturation.

Varietals: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia

Vines: Fruit sourced from the 1969 planted No. 1 Cabernet Sauvignon, exclusively from the south west corner following a gravel band that crosses through the corner of the block. This corner is slower to mature and ripen, always the last pick from the block.

Cellaring: This is one for the cellar to evolve for a further 20+ years under suitable conditions.

Analysis: 13.5% Alc.
