The fruit for this impressive Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from two of the top growers in Coonawarra - Kym Tolley’s Penley Estate and Michael Wetherall’s Wetherall Estate. Picked on different days to allow for optimum ripening, parcels of fruit for the Mr. Riggs 2013 "Outpost" Coonawarra Cabernet were separately fermented in 7 and 8 tonne open fermenters. On skin fermentation was completed before pressings were sent to barrel for 13-17 months to complete fermentation in a 30% new French and American oak combination.
Elegance and structure combines with the richness of a top vintage to produce a classically styled Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
Totally opaque black crimson colour with a dark crimson black hue. The nose displays lifted ripe blackcurrant and mulberry aromas followed by a hint of bay leaf, cigar box and spice. Medium to full bodied with a rich elegant structure the palate possesses bountiful blackcurrant and mulberry fruits over a background of cedar, light tobacco leaf and spice. Dryish finish with solidly built but fine grained tannins. Long aftertaste of blackcurrant, mulberry, cedar, subtle tobacco leaf and spice.
Cellar 6-8 years.
