Shingleback know about Cabernet Sauvignon, having claimed a Jimmy Watson Trophy in 2006. Winemaker John Davey selects the best blocks of vine, then picks them right at the precise moment that both sugars and flavour are mature. With the right fruit, minimal handling is required and the character of the luscious McLaren Vale Cabernet grapes shines through. A fully aromatic, blackberried wine with rich earthy flavours, made in the ripe fruit forward style that has distinguished Shingleback as one of the McLaren Vale's finest ever Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cabernet Sauvignon (predominantly clones LC10 and CW44), grown to red and black soils over limestone on the Davey Family Vineyard. The site is dedicated to producing high quality, intensely coloured and flavoured grapes, using innovative canopy management and progressive viticultural techniques. Partial cold soaking prior to vinification maximises fragrant qualities. Extended fermentation time on skins helps to capture the essence of the fruit and gives a silky but firm tannin finish. Shingleback is aged an average of fourteen months in a combination of fine grained French and European oak hogsheads, softening and enhancing the fruit while integrating structural components. Alcohol 14.4%
TASTING NOTES
Deep magenta colour. Lifted cassis aromas with nuances of dark chocolate, bay leaf and sage. Chocolate, black cherry and blackberry over an undercurrent of mint. Blueberry flavours fill the rich, dark berry middle palate, tightly framed by soft, ripe tannins and the minerality of the soils which nurture the vines. Fine grained French and European oak add cashew complexity, enhancing the presence and structure of solid Cabernet fruits which linger on the finish.
