The consistency of the Clare climate usually produces a good Cabernet Sauvignon. 2016 with a wet winter and mild summer takes the variety to a new level. Aged for 20 months in French Oak. Will cellar for at least 10-15 years.
Erin Eyes 2016 Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Grape – 100% Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Region – Clare Valley, South Australia
Colour – Deep purple
Nose – Mixed berries, cassis, cedar
Palate – Dominant cassis, old world in style, elegant and smooth. Soft well integrated tannins.
Winemaker – Steve Wiblin
Alcohol – 14.1%
Awards – 95 Points James Halliday
Remarks: “35yo vines, matured for 20 months in French oak. Excellent deep crimson-purple hue; the bouquet suggests what the palate confirms. This is the best Steve Wiblin Cabernet Sauvignon made to date in a region that does little more than tolerate cabernet. It is rich in blackcurrant/cassis, with tannins assisting rather than quarrelling with the fruit, oak a finishing touch.” – James Halliday

Faint tinge of green with fresh passionfruit and tropical fruit flavours traces of mango and citrus. Clean finish with crisp acidity and an aftertaste of passionfruit, green apple and citrus.
