2013 Tom and Mitch Australian Shiraz Cabernet Blend

2013 Tom and Mitch Australian Shiraz Cabernet Blend, Tom & Mitch Wicks ( sons )are just like Shiraz & Cabernet, both can stand up for themselves but together they just work seamlessly. A bold red, ready for anything. Great for BBQ’s and every other occasion really. An excellent 2012/13 growing season gave rise to a well-balanced Cabernet crop, with picture perfect clusters of tiny berries spread evenly through the fruiting zone. This is a well-balanced red blend that is ideal for drinking over the next few years. Savory and slightly earthy aromas with a sprinkle of black pepper. The palate is seamless and balanced with a nice mix of fruit, oak and tannin. It’s almost medium bodied and would be per-fect with light pasta dishes.WINEMAKING WINEMAKING Individual parcels were subjected to a range of processing techniques, with various yeast strains and cap management strategies employed. Ferments were either pumped over or plunged twice daily in a range of small open and static fermenters. Each parcel spent between 8-14 days on skins prior to being gently pressed. The individual parcels were then racked into barrel prior to final barrel selection and ultimately blending. TASTING NOTES COLOUR Vibrant dark red. AROMA Cassis and dark fruit fl avours combine with subtle hints of tobacco and chocolate. FLAVOUR After 12 months in French oak the soft silky tannins are fi nely balanced by the fruit fl avours subtle oak nuances. CELLAR POTENTIAL 10 years   Adelaide Hills Tasting Notes
