2016 Wildwood Road Cabernet Sauvignon Image

2016 Wildwood Road Cabernet Sauvignon

Margaret River, WA

Lifted blue fruit, dark plum aromas and some dusty oak make this wine very appealing. A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with sage notes, and fine tannins from both the fruit and oak on the palate. Lovely acidity and a cedar finish describe a Cabernet Sauvignon that will age for many years.

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. Vintage 2016 continued Margaret River’s golden run of great vintages. Plentiful winter rain in 2015 and then a fine spring and early summer. Parts of the district had rain in January/February but Yallingup produced excellent Cabernet Sauvignon.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with steak tartare, carpaccio or lamb dishes.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
