1999 Turkey Flat Vineyards Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$39.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

Notes sourced from Turkey Flat Vineyard.

This wine is made from fruit grown on the historic150 year old Turkey Flat vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on the river flat near the cellar door where tobacco once grew during World War 1. Although the tobacco did not thrive, the Cabernet Sauvignon vines produce fruit of exceptional richness and concentration. What sets Cabernet Sauvignon apart is its ability to travel, to set down its roots in distant lands and still produce something that is recognisably Cabernet, whatever the circumstances and conditions. Whilst the Barossa Valley has largely earned its reputation for making 'big' reds with the Shiraz grape variety, this wine is certainly proof that the Barossa can produce Cabernet with power and concentration.

The 1999 vintage has produced a full-bodied ripe Cabernet Sauvignon with an elegant and fragrant bouquet. The wine was matured for 2 years in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads. Deep crimson red colour. The nose displays intense berry fruit aromas - mulberry, cassis, red currents and a hint of wintergreen supported by subtle oak. The palate is full bodied, rich berry fruit flavours with a backbone of fine grained tannin. Cellar up to 10 years. 14.0% alc/vol.
