- ABV 14%
- Closure: Stelvin
Fruit for this consistent performer is sourced from Elderton’s own vineyard with Cabernet vines ranging in age between 35-50 years old. Maturation takes place in French oak puncheons for a period of 18 months. Totally opaque black dark red colour with a dark red purple hue. The nose offers up aromas of ripe blackcurrants intermixed with dark chocolate and liquorice over some vanillin cedar and spice. Medium to full bodied with excellent richness and a round opulent mouthfeel the palate boasts generous flavours of ripe blackcurrants, subtle dark chocolates and ripe dark cherries with underlying vanillin cedar and spice nuances. Very fine grained tannins provide a solid structural base. Long aftertaste of ripe blackcurrant, ripe dark cherries, subtle dark chocolate and spicy vanillin cedar.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Estate-grown vines 35-50yo; matured for 22 months in French hogsheads. Quite apart from the rarity of cabernet vines of this age, the viticultural skill in managing growth through to picking at this baume/alcohol level is the cornerstone for a strongly varietal cabernet treated with utmost respect in the winery. Drink by 2035.
