2013 Wicks Tom & Mitch Shiraz Cabernet Adelaide Hills Australia

VINEYARD
An excellent 2012/13 growing season gave rise to a well-balanced Cabernet crop, with picture perfect clusters of tiny berries spread evenly through the fruiting zone. This is a well-balanced red blend that is ideal for drinking over the next few years. Savoury and slightly earthy aromas with a sprinkle of black pepper. The palate is seamless and balanced with a nice mix of fruit, oak and tannin. It’s almost mediumbodied and would be per-fect with light pasta dishes.

WINEMAKING
Individual parcels were subjected to a range of processing techniques, with various yeast strains and cap management strategies employed. Ferments were either pumped over or plunged twice daily in a range of small open and static fermenters. Each parcel spent between 8-14 days on skins prior to being gently pressed. The individual parcels were then racked into barrel prior to final barrel selection and ultimately blending.
