De Bortoli Woodfired Heathcote Cabernet 2019
De Bortoli Woodfired Heathcote Cabernet 2019 has an intense dark colour red with purple edge. Ripe blackberry and blueberry characters, cedar-wood and liquorice. Soft, rich, mouth coating, balanced tannin, hints of classic Cabernet, authentically Heathcote.
Woodfired wines are authentically Heathcote and perfectly crafted to accompany a chargrilled ribeye. Bold, brooding and delicious. Vineyards from the Northern section of Heathcote were selected, mainly around Corop. The ancient red Cambrian soils of Northern Heathcote are ideal for dark fruited, rich, soft Cabernet. Fruit for the De Bortoli Woodfired Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 vintage were de-stemmed and fermented at 25-30°C over 8-12 days. Pressed and matured in vats and casks for 7 months. Racked and aerated regularly to soften the wine. Vineyards carefully selected for a balance of fruit weight and ripeness. Lovely drinking now. Will age well and be even more complex and delicious over the next 3-8 years.
