2015 Kirrihill Clare Valley Regional Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

Region

2015 Kirrihill Clare Valley Regional Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia Vineyard The fruit for this wine was sourced from the sub regions of the Clare Valley, Auburn, Armagh, Hill River and Leasingham. Each parcel of fruit was harvested in March in the cool of night to retain the aromatics and delicate flavors.

Growing Conditions

Adequate winter rains followed by a dry budburst meant an early vintage. Low crops and good canopies ensured rapid ripening and delicate flavors. The vineyards maintained good shoot length, canopy coverage and bunch numbers. A great vintage for maintaining delicate fruit and nervy natural acidity. The 2015 vintage will be one that re writes the books as being the shortest and most compact vintage Clare has seen.

Winemaking

to make the Kirrihill Clare Valley Regional Selection Cabernet Sauvignon , each parcel of this wine was picked at night after reaching optimum flavor levels and kept separate. Each parcel was cold soaked for between 1 -5 days, warmed up and fermented. Daily pump overs were utilized to maximize the extraction of color, flavor and tannin from the skins. All parcels were pressed onto French oak for 12 to 14 months. A rigorous tasting and blending of each parcel was undertaken to ensure only the highest quality of wine was included in the final blend of this Regional Cabernet.
