5.2t was picked and chilled overnight. The following morning, bunches were destemmed onto a sorting table for berry selection. The pure clean fruit is then top-tipped into an open fermenter where the grapes underwent fermentation and remained on skins for 24 days. This extended maceration produced silky tannins, essential for the structure and longevity of the wine. After pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barriques (35% new) for extended elevage. After 9 months the wine was rack and returned to 20% new and the rest 1 and 2-yr old oak for a further 6 months until bottling.
A complex cool climate Cabernet nose of blackberry, violets and fleshy ripe fruits. The palate is defined by perfectly ripe soft tannins that will ensure the the 2019 Medhurst Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to improve with careful cellaring for at least a decade
