Calcannia Cabernet Sauvignon
The winter rainfall was light in 2019 vintage and as a result the Clare vineyard had less
ground water during the summer, producing small bunches and berries which gave
increased colour and flavour than previous vintages in this special Cabernet Sauvignon. Our estate grown Clare Valley fruits at peak ripeness were carefully harvested in the cool morning to capture the delicate aromas of the fruit. The grapes were then delivered to the winery where they are transferred cool to the open fermenter. Wines made in traditional open fermenters have a greater abundance of lifted aromatics and a broader fruit spectrum. At the end of the fermentation process the wine was transferred to French and American oak where it matured for close to two years.
