2015 Balgownie Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
New Vintage Release

Cabernet Sauvignon was first planted at Balgownie Estate by Stuart Anderson in 1969, followed by a second planting in 1974. The carefully selected site in Maiden Gully near Bendigo has provided excellent conditions throughout its long year history, producing sensational Cabernet since the first release in 1972. An impressive, rich and complex wine with depth, excellent balance and length of palate that is a memorable match with roast sirloin or a wine to cellar and savour with sixteen years bottle age.

Tasting Notes
"Immensely and immediately approachable with of the varietal flavours at play from cassis and blackcurrants, warm earth, saltbush and attractive slippery oak too. Medium-bodied, tooth-coating tannins and enough oomph to last another decade or so but don't overlook it now." James Halliday’s 2019 Wine Companion - Rating 93
Vineyard Notes
Warm dry spring conditions led to good fruit set and healthy vines. Dry conditions prevailed until harvest resulting in ripe fruit with excellent flavours and concentration. Yields in the vineyard were kept to a minimum through green harvesting to build intensity and flavour in the fruit. Grapes were harvested by hand at their optimum ripeness over several passes in the vineyard.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was destemmed and crushed and was then pumped straight to small open vats for fermentation. A slow fermentation on skins over the next 14 to 20 days occurred with the number of pump overs and plunging kept to a minimum and to maintain the quality of the fruit. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barriques (30% new), and bottled without fining.
Food Pairing Notes
