2018 Chain Of Ponds Amadeus Cabernet Sauvignon Adelaide Hills – Selected from McLaren Range vineyard at Kuitpo in the southern Adelaide Hills, with an elevation of 360m. Soil is a sandy loam with ironstone gravel over weathering sandstone, Clone is G9V3 and the canopy is managed with a single catch wire and assisted sprawl. The result is a block which produces elegant wines of dark fruits, powerful tannins and varietal intensity.
Intensely complex yet varietal Cabernet with lifted dark fruits of cassis, mulberry and blueberry, integrated with nuances of spearmint, tomato vine and tobacco leaf. Secondary flavours of spice, mocha and cashew nuts balance and fill out the nose.
The palate is full bodied, displaying seamlessly integrated dark berry fruit and savoury characters. The result a well rounded wine with exceptional fruit weight and length. Good acidity and structural velvety tannins give drinkability now along with great ageing potential.
