Description

WINEMAKING
The fruit underwent pre-fermentation cold soaking for 10 days followed by a clean, warm (25-30°C) ferment. Maceration was via twice daily pump-overs (using specialized gentle tannin extraction method) also three rack-returns during ferment. Yeast strains used were Clos and F15. Total time on skins was 26 days to allow for tannin development and balance. Fifteen months in 50% new and 50% one year old French oak barriques
(predominately Bossuet and D’Aquitaine).
 
TASTING NOTE
The tenth vintage of Castelli Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon shows an amazing consistency of site terroir. The wine has a purity of classic Cabernet aromas of sweet blackberries with some overlaid mocha and dark chocolate nuances. The palate is medium to full bodied and the fine layered tannins form a solid core that is perfectly balanced
with the fruit flavour and oak. A small addition of Malbec to the wine gives some suppleness and flesh to the mid palate and rounded support to the tannin backbone. This powerfully structured, well balanced wine will
age well over the next 10-15 years.
