Brokenwood Wines

2015 Wildwood Road Cabernet Sauvignon

2015 Wildwood Road Cabernet Sauvignon

Margaret River, WA

The colour is medium to deep density and quite purple on the rim. Lovely, sweet cedar, red fruit aromas and distinct vanillin from 100% French oak. Sage/herb garden flavours with plenty of sweet Cabernet fruit. The finish is long with a juicy acidity and ripe tannins. Built for the long haul, however it can be enjoyed over the medium term.

Wine Profile
Vinification
The grapes were crushed and cold soaked before fermentation for 4 days. Brokenwood winemaking is about soft extraction giving beautifully balanced tannins. The wine was matured in 100% French oak for 18 months with 30% being new.
Winemaker Comments
Brokenwood wines previously included Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon in blends with the first in 1983. Wildwood Road connects Caves Road at Yallingup on the coast to inland Carbunup and is the home to a number of high quality vineyards. There are generally low yields across the region. Very good winter/spring rainfall but nothing until mid-March. The 2015 vintage has produced some classic Cabernet Sauvignon red wines.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with steak tartare, carpaccio or lamb dishes.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
