The Parson Cabernet Sauvignon is our introduction to explore and enjoy this regal McLaren Vale variety. This wine displays expressive and alluring aromas of liquorice and mulberry. The wonderfully structured and eloquent palate is broodingly complexed by an array of persistent fine grain tannins.
- Winemaking Notes
To achieve the desired style and to harness the regal varietal flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes were strategically harvested to avoid any green tannins or overripe jammy fruit flavours. The subsequent open ferments were then gently plunged daily and allowed to remain on skins for up to 9 days to ensure the optimum extraction of flavour and tannin. Following basket pressing the free run and pressing fractions are combined. To promote and nurture varietal expression and complexity only well seasoned tight grained French oak was used during the maturation process. During this maturation period the wine was regularly racked to encourage the integration and mellowing of the boisterous youthful tannins.
