Xanadu Margaret River Exmoor Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
SOLD OUT - Click here for the 2015 Vintage
Deep red with ruby hues. The wine exhibits vibrant, characteristic aromas of ripe blackcurrants, berry fruits, and dark plums entwined with hints of spicy, toasty oak.
The generous palate is packed full of jubey forest fruits, cassis and chocolate characters. Full bodied, these attractive fleshy fruits fit into a structure supported by fine boned tannins, and a persistent berry fruit finish.
This vibrant and moreish Cabernet is ready to drink now, or cellar comfortably for up to five years.
In summary; 2014 was yet another excellent season, continuing the dream run of vintages we have had in Margaret River over the last eight years! The fruit for this blend was predominantly Estate-grown fruit from our Boodjidup Vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River.
The fruit was crushed and destemmed then fermented in a combination of Static and Rotary fermenters at 26°C for 5 – 7 days. Approximately 20% of the components experienced a pre- fermentation cold soak, with another 30% being left for a period of extended maceration on skins for 28 days. The various batches underwent MLF in tank and barrel before 14 months maturation in a selection French oak barriques (20% new oak). Winery Notes 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Merlot, 1% Malbec
