Jo Nash Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

SILVER MEDAL International Wine & Spirit Competition 2019! 
90 POINTS - JAMES HALLIDAY! 

 

"Fruit sourced from a vineyard on the banks of the Goulburn River. Fermented with wild yeast, separate parcels spending between 6 and 12 months in French barriques. Red berries are the main theme on the bouquet with a touch of chocolate (perhaps oak) in the background. Medium-bodied and quite soft and sweet-fruited on the palate, it's ready to go now." - Steven Creber, Halliday Wine Companion

 

"Fruit was harvested from 16 year old vines in an exceptional vineyard site from our GV vineyard on 22nd March 2018. The vineyard is situated on the banks of the Goulburn River, and is of sandy soils, with excellent draining providing ideal conditions for growing high quality fruit. Tonnages were kept low, (approximately 1.5 tonnes/acre) to allow for maximum quality and flavour. The must was fermented with wild yeast in open pot fermenters and hand plunged every eight hours for the ferment’s duration. Separate parcels of the wine spent between 6 and 12 months in French oak barriques, after which the final blending of select parcels took place. The resulting wine exhibits lovely red fruit characters, with hints of blackcurrant and chocolate. The palate has exceptional length of flavour with good tannins which will allow the wine to cellar for the next 10-15 years. 

A lovely accompaniment to French cheese or charcuterie, this is also a perfect wine for big flavoured meals like roast meats and hearty pasta. The trick is to balance the beautiful intense flavours with rich, flavoursome dishes that will hold their own with this gorgeous wine." - Jo Nash
