Torpedo Rocks Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Torpedo Rocks Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Yield: 4 tonne/hectare

Soils: Quartz gravel, sandy loam

 

Winemaking: From our north facing slopes high on the valley side of the property, this fruit captures the full sunlight and cool maritime breezes. Low yielding cropping levels to ensure maximum sugar and flavour ratio.

Hand-picked, basket pressed with fermentation in open vats to ensure gentle tannin extraction. Barrel aged for 24 months in 100% Grande Reserve French Oak barriques with the new oak component being 35% with 2, 3 and 4 year oak old barriques.

 

Minimal intervention when bottled.

 

Tasting Comments: - Mid red colour with a magenta rim, the bouquet almost jumps out the glass with cassis, cherries, sweet spice and blackberry. All the above fruits follow through onto the palate with some mulberries and plums coming through. The mouth feel is of big ripe fruits, dusty tannins leading to a silky long finish. The wine will keep evolving with cellaring.

  • Minimum order quantitiy is six bottles (either all the same wine, or a selection to make a mixed box). A 10% discount is offered on purchases of 6 bottles, and 15% discount for 12 bottles of more.
