Fermoy Estate

2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

$95

Varietals (%’S):  100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Appearance:  Rich ruby red with black tints.

Aroma:  Aromas of blackcurrant, boysenberry, raspberry and bay-leaf herb with lifted notes of violets, dark chocolate and cedary oak spice.

Palate:  Fine-boned and elegant, this medium-weighted wine still displays power and gravitas. Succulent, concentrated fruits through the mid-palate lead into herb nuance and complexing dustings of spice. Long, fine tannins and carefully managed tight-grained oak provide structure, framework and length to ensure a beautifully elegant finish.

Oak Detail:  18 months maturation in a combination of new (50%) and seasoned French oak barriques.

Cellaring:  Tannins are plentiful – providing a structural framework to the wine and ensuring good cellaring potential of 20+ years, however they are sufficiently fine and elegant to allow for immediate enjoyment.

Alcohol Volume:  14.5%
Acidity:  pH 3.64 TA 6.4 g/L
Residual Sugar:  0.6 g/L

Awards:

Gold - 2021 Decanter World Wine Awards, 2020 Perth Royal Wine Show and 2020 Wine Show of WA.

 

95pts - “A substantial red wine, but a svelte one. Creamy oak on curranty fruit with mulberry, tobacco and bay leaf as highlights. There’s quite a lot of oak here, but the balance hasn’t been thrown. Fruit quality is exemplary. Drink by 2037”. Campbell Mattinson, 2021 Halliday Wine Companion.
