Nugan Estate 'Single Vineyard Stomper's' Cabernet 2015

Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

Brilliant ruby. Tight, the sharply focused nose displays scents of blackberry, cassis, graphite, and mint, lifted by a lavender top note. 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.

A vanilla-laced raspberry style that has a wealth of sweet, candied oak and berries. Drink now. Screw cap.



Winemaker Notes

Our cabernet vineyard requires 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 work 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 you like it.
