2020 Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon

Estate Family Vineyards

Back to All

$32 Per Bottle

In stock

RRP $38
750ml

A variety with a great legacy at Elderton. With fruits from across the Barossa, we rely on fruit from our Nuriootpa vineyard for structure and weight, with richer ripe characters of red fruit and cassis. Our Craneford vineyard at slightly higher elevation and a cooler edge adds fragrance and perfume to the blend.

Winemakers Comments

Our 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is a structured yet fragrant wine. In a similar fashion to 2019, yields were low and the season was dry without being too hot. This resulted in small berries with intense flavour and ample tannin ripeness for extraction. Careful cap management to enhance fruit, and not overpower with tannin, has resulted in this having a lovely, vibrant, leafy note balanced with stern tannins to drive the finish on the wine. There is a lovely delicate oak note to the palate giving a little sweetness and balance to the fruit with that power of tan-nin on the finish. The 2020 Cabernet was pressed from open fermenter to a combination of new and seasoned French oak for malolactic fermentation and further maturation for the following year. We carefully blended the parcels from our three sites to achieve the best balance. - Jules Ashmead and Brock Harrison
