Pedestal Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Margaret River, WA
Inky purple. Classic Cabernet aroma of blackcurrant. The wine is medium bodied with primary flavours of blackcurrant and bay leaf, layered with secondary cedar and chocolate. Velvety soft tannins and a long finish.
Low rainfall and warm temperatures in spring resulted in a very early harvest. All varietals performed exceptionally well with the standout being Cabernet Sauvignon.
Fruit was hand-picked and crushed to static, stainless steel fermenters via the sorting table. Fermentation lasted for three weeks with gentle maceration. The time on skins allowed for softening of the tannins. Components were aged for 10 months in a combination of new and 1-2 year old French oak barrels prior to blending and bottling.
