2014 Fermoy Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Half Yearly
100% Estate grown Cabernet from our original 30 year old vines grown on gravel loam
Deep garnet red.
Classic cassis and redcurrant fruits with savoury herbal notes of bay leaf and dried herbs on the nose
The wines is a medium to full bodied, elegant expression of Margaret River cabernet- supported by a fine, linear palate showing length and finesse. Fine oak characters of cedar dark chocolate and vanilla provide structure, weight and complexity.
Final barrel selection resulted in a blend of 75% new oak, 25% 1 year old combination of Taransaud and St.Martin cooperages.
Drinking well now, showing perfumed structure and tannin length, but made for the long term, will elvove over the next 10-20 years
