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
