Clare Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The 2014 Clare Wine Co Cabernet Sauvignon is the fifth release from the Clare Valley estate, owned by Kaesler wines. Kaesler own vineyards in the Watervale and Polish Hill sub-regions of the Clare Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit to make this wine was sourced from both the Watervale & Polish Hill vineyards. Fruit was picked and then transported to Kaesler in the Barossa Valley for processing. The wine was fermented at a medium temperature (26-30 Degrees centigrade) in stainless steel and transferred to mainly older oak. The 2011 Cabernet was matured in 15% new French oak and the balance 3 and 4 year old French oak barriques for 12 months. This has given a hint of oak but still allowing the fruit to dominate.
