The Range

All Saints premium varietal wines are hallmark regional varieties, expressing a true sense of place, with fruit carefully selected from the best blocks on the estate. They are made in the original winery deep inside the castle using handcrafted techniques including open fermentation, gentle basket pressing, and finally, quiet ageing in French and American oak.

The Wine

Displaying vibrant dark purple colour this wine also shows typical varietal blackcurrant fruit character and undertones of minerality from its Rutherglen origins. It finishes long and dry with fine sandy grained tannins, and lovely spice notes from the French oak.

Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon is a noble grape variety, one that forms the basis of many of the great wines of Bordeaux, France. In that relatively cold, wet climate it often needs those other varieties, such as Merlot, to fill it out. Here in Australia ripeness is not a problem and we make splendidly full-bodied, lush Cabernet wines.

Winemaking

Once picked, the stems are removed and the berries crushed, this must is then fermented for between 7-10 days. All the colour and the tannins that give the wine its backbone are extracted with twice daily hand plunging during this fermentation on skins. After pressing and settling, the wine is then aged for 17 months in 3 to 5 years old French oak barriques. Minimal filtration and fining is needed before the wine is bottled.

Food Matching

If drinking the wine young in the cooler months, try richer meat dishes like lamb shanks or casseroles which will temper the tannins and allow the fruit characters of the wine to be more prominent. If you can wait a few years, the tannins will soften and the wine will be great match for grilled lamb or steak.

Cellaring Potential

The wine has very good cellaring potential. Over time the flavours will take on more leathery, mineral tones and the tannins will soften, resulting in a mellow wine of great complexity. It should develop well for at least five years, even up to 10 if cellared in ideal conditions.

"A pleasant wine with notes of licorice, new leather, cassis and spice. A bit sinewy on the palate, verging on a dry red saved by a touch of fruit sweetness but not overly cabernet-like." Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
