Balgownie Estate

2015 Balgownie Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

2015 Balgownie Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

The Estate Cabernet is one of the original wines of Balgownie estate, and is produced from vineyards planted almost 50 years ago at Maiden Gully outside Bendigo. The vineyard 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 93/100
"The measured delivery of complexity and elegance is what captivated me about this Cabernet from the Bendigo region. Oceans of blackcurrants and blackberries swim with ease. Some Cabernet leafiness makes a stand early only to be moved aside by dried thyme and tomato bush. Tobacco makes a run late on a smooth and moreish finish. Give it a good decant and be rewarded." Qwine Review - Rating 93/100
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.
