2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon
Museum Wine - Limited Time

If our Great Western region were somehow prohibited from growing Shiraz, it would probably be just as famous for its Cabernets. Intense spicy, berry, leafy aromas and long, dense, yet supple flavours and classic structure are hallmarks of Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon. With age, these wines develop remarkable finesse and elegance.

Cabernet Sauvignon from Great Western works well from the right sites. Warmer and north facing sites tend to produce the best fruit. As is common in other regions, Cabernet Sauvignon in Great Western is picked late in the vintage season to allow for good fruit flavour and texture - the warmer vineyard sites and a little longer on the vine results in a supple wine with intense varietal characteristics.

Our former winemaker Adam Wadewitz commented: “2010 was a great growing season and we’re seeing some supple, medium-bodied Cabernet as a result. An exciting combination of parcels came together to produce a wine with lifted varietal characteristics, ripeness and mid-palate weight but with well developed tannins. Multi-layered and ready to drink now.”

We opened a bottle of the 2010 the other night. When opened we got a spicy and berry aroma and could smell the fruit. Upon pouring, the wine had a deep crimson red colour. The first tasting was a delight. The flavours were delicious and soft on the palate with no tangy after taste on the tongue as some wines may do.

This wine accompanied a dish of soba noodles with honey soy chicken thigh fillets and steamed vegetables and was a perfect match.

The wine would last even longer if kept correctly in a proper wine cabinet.

Highly recommended this wine.
