2016 Juniper Cornerstone Karridale Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River – A single vineyard wine sourced from their Karridale property in the southern part of Margaret River which is sustainably farmed following organic practices.
A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure and flavour), and 5% Malbec (providing colour and richness), whichwas selectively picked, then sorted for optimum quality. The fruit spent 17 days on skins to extract colour, tannin and flavour, with fermentation taking place in one tonne hand-plunged open fermenters. Matured in French barriques for 18 months, followed by barrel selection and blending, resulting in 50% new oak in the final blend.
The wine is a luminous deep red in colour. A vibrant aromatic nose is suggestive of blue and red fruits, with hints of bay leaf, vanilla, spice & cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with lifted and expressive Cabernet fruit flavours; smooth, refined tannins & tremendous length. It would pair nicely with lamb cutlets and redcurrant jelly.
Cellaring potential of 20+ years.
