2016 Beyond Broke Road Cabernet Sauvignon
$18.00 / bottle
The grapes were sourced from the Limestone Coast region of south-east South Australia, a place with a cool Mediterranean climate that is ideal for Cabernet. Cabernet has a real affinity for the soils and weather conditions in the Limestone Coast. The fruit was picked in the cool of the night and processed without crushing the berries, this reduces the extraction of overt tannin in favour of more fruit freshness and vibrancy. Maturation took place in older 500L French puncheons for 12 months, ideal when trying to highlight the fruits vibrancy and structure. Beyond Broke Road Cabernet Sauvignon is medium to full bodied. It has classic lifted dark cherry and blackberry aromas with hints of violets and olive tapenade. The plate is vibrant and fresh showing off the dark fruits and herbaceous varietal notes with silky tannins a bright natural balance.
