McPherson Wine Co. Cabernet Sauvignon, 2015

This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the family vineyard situated on the banks of the
Goulburn River. It has sandy soils, with excellent drainage, providing ideal conditions for growing high quality fruit. The grapes were harvested from 16 year old vines, then transported to the winery. The must was fermented in static red fermenters and pumped over every eight hours for the ferment’s duration. Once the ferment was dry, the resulting wine was pressed off the skins and allowed to settle prior to spontaneous secondary fermentation. Separate parcels of the wine spent between 6 and 12 months in French oak barriques, after which the final blending of select parcels took place. This medium bodied wine displays notes of rich black fruits and berries complemented with elegant oak and a nuance of chocolate. Perfectly balanced, with a firm, smooth tannin structure, the wine finishes with an enduring length of ripe fruit and cedary oak. Try this wine with a hearty barbecued steak, short ribs, or a mushroom pizza with spicy tomato sauce to heat things up a little!
