Sandras Red Rock Cab Sauv
Old Vine Eden Valley Ultra Premium Cabernet Sauvignon – RRP $140 per bottle.
From the cellars of our premium selection, this beautiful Cabernet displays generous dark berry aromas. On the palate is intense, succulent berry and spice flavours, distinctive tannins and a firm elegant finish. Added complexity from an excellent vintage.
The fruit was crushed into small 2 tonne fermenters and fermented for 10-12 days with hand plunging in the morning and again in the evening, pushing the skins down into the fermenting juice, further imparting the precious colour and flavours in to the developing wine. After fermentation the skins were gently basket pressed for further flavour and colour extraction. The wine was then racked to a mixture of new and three year old French and American oak hogsheads. Every six months the wines were racked to tank and returned to oak, slowly removing deposits and assisting with clarity.
Leg of rare roast lamb with rosemary jus.
