Tasting note

South Australia?s Barossa has a global reputation for producing some of Australia?s and the world?s greatest full bodied red wines. The Artisan Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 is an extraordinary example of how exceptional Barossa and this red variety can be. Blended from several clones, crushed / destemmed prior to stainless static fermenters with a cultured yeast added during the crush. 6-9 days on skins. Matured in a mix of new, 2, 3 and 4 year old French hogsheads for 10 months. Colour is brooding deep red brick with purple hues. Enticing aromas of blueberries, plums and earthy oak complexity. The palate opens up gracefully to share luscious, generous quintessential warm climate Cabernet characters with beautifully balanced tannins. The finish is rich, long and velvety smooth. Cellar potential of 15+ years.
