Nugan Estate

Nugan Estate 'SV Stomper's' Cabernet 2014

90 pts Vinous - Fine-grained tannins make a late appearance and add shape to a very long, smoke-tinged finish that echoes the cherry note.

Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

Brilliant ruby. Tight, sharply focused nose displays scents of blackberry, cassis, graphite and mint, lifted by a lavender topnote. Dense yet lively on the palate, offering intense dark fruit flavors that become sweeter with air. Supple tannins frame the incisive finish, which lingers with very good fruit-driven intensity.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Vinous
Youthful purple. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of sandalwood, potpourri and cracked pepper. Concentrated and juicy on the palate, offering sweet cherry and black currant flavors that become more lively with aeration. Fine-grained tannins make a late appearance and add shape to a very long, smoke-tinged finish that echoes the cherry note. -- Josh Raynolds



Winemaker Notes

Our cabernet vineyard requirers more work than the shiraz and it’s become a favorite for the birds as the bunches ripen. Stomper has his hands full indeed. We work hard to stress the soils and slow down the ripening of the cabernet because it helps achieve the flavors we like so much. Darren Owers our winemaker, reckons our cabernet is the best in the region and praises Stomper for the world he does in the vineyard. Our fruit is destemmed and pressed before going through a lengthy cold soaking. After fermentation, we macerate on the skins for about 10 days to extract soft tannins and deep, rich flavors. There’s never any short cuts on the barrel program and this wine sees only French oak, of which 25% is new. Since there are several different parcels on the vineyard and they’re always kept separate throughout the entire process, putting the final blend together takes several days and is a major team effort. We’re really proud of this and hope yo like it.
