Winemaking
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of my favourite wine varieties and make some of the greatest red wine that the world has seen. I wanted to make a Cabernet sauvignon that was a pure expression of the variety. I believe that great Cabernet has two sides. The wine needs to be rich, ripe, muscular and complex yet have a real elegance and silkiness. I believe that the Weerona Cabernet Sauvignon displays all the traits.
Colour
Dark black olive in colour with blood red and slightly purple hues.
Bouquet
The nose displays wonderfully lifted aromas of stewed black fruits of blackberry and boysenberry. This is supported by nuances of mint, eucalypt and lavender. There are also hints of tobacco and cedar.
Palate
The palate is full bodied, ripe, savoury, complex and dry. The upfront fruit flavours are of overtly ripe fruits of the forest. The mid palate is complex with flavours of fresh basil, sarsaparilla, licquorice and dark bitter chocolate. The back palate is dry and firm with along yet elegant intensity.
