Richard Hamilton Hut Block Cabernet 2010
The fruit selected for this wine comes from four vineyard blocks to the south of the McLaren Vale township. The oldest of the vines, planted in 1968 on our winery block, provides the backbone of the blend. Some oak fermentation has been used to enhance the aroma of the wine. Our philosophy is to augment, rather than dominate, the fruit with oak and as a result 25% of the oak is new or one year old, with the remaining being used in the previous blends. The colour is deep, full vibrant red with a bouquet of ripe fragrant cassis and peppermint nose, with attractive scented vanilla and coffee overtones arising from integrated oak. Long bright elegantly structured palate showing persistent varietal fruit and fine grained tannins. The wine has great fruit sweetness.
