Mollydooker Maître D' Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (McLaren Vale)

Who is The Maître D’?
The Maître D’ was named after Sparky, who put himself through winemaking college as a left handed Maître D’.

The deep blend of red and purple colours and abundant aromas introduce the depth of this Mollydooker Cabernet. Rich and complex in flavour, notes of cherry and blackberry transition to green herbs, bramble and mocha all the while maintaining a dimension of sweet fruit. Soft and smooth on the palate, the 2018 Maitre D’ balances flavour and structure perfectly.

Starting early March, the 2018 Vintage can be defined by the even ripening that lead to great fermentation conditions. The grapes came into the winery at a steady pace with excellent colour and breadth of flavour shown as soon as the fruit was first crushed. Ferments were easily controlled allowing efficient extraction of tannins and flavours from the skins during pump-overs. Malolactic fermentation moved quickly during the oak maturation phase to reveal the intensity and depth of character of the wines which will be the hall mark of 2018 Vintage.

The Fruit Weight™ and flavours needed time to develop in the vineyards before we could begin crafting the wines in the winery. Our patience was well rewarded with plenty of bright, vibrant fruit. Primary ferments were vigorous and healthy; some were cooled to 3.5˚c to slow down the fermentation to allow maximum colour and flavour to be extracted from the skins.

Marquis Fruit Weight™ is the percentage of your palate (from the tip of your tongue going all the way back) that's covered by the velvety sensation of fruit, before you experience any of the structural components of the wine. Required: 65% - 70% Actual: 68

The fruit for Mollydooker Maitre D' is sourced from McLaren Vale vineyards - Coppermine Road, Martins Road & Long Gully Road, and are sustainably grown. Picked between the 18th to the 29th March. Barrel fermented and matured in 83% American Oak, 17% French oak, 34% new, 51% one year old and 15% two years old.
