Having won the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy in 2018 for our 2016 vintage, the pedigree of our Xanadu Cabernet continues to shine. This museum release 2014 is no exception, displaying a generous but elegant palate with a core of boysenberry, blackcurrants and Satsuma plums.

Tasting Notes

Deep red with ruby hues
The wine exhibits vibrant, characteristic aromas of cassis, mulberries and black plums entwined with hints of bay leaf, nori and potpourri.
Medium to full bodied yet refined, the generous but elegant palate offers a core of boysenberry, blackcurrants and Satsuma plums. Plush and wellstructured, the palate is layered with these dark fleshy fruit characteristics and ripe tannins which culminate through to a persistent fine grained and detailed classic Cabernet finish.

Winemaking

1.5 litres
Fruit was crushed/destemmed before predominantly small batch fermentation in a combination of static and open fermenter. Fermentation takes 7-8 days at 24 – 26°C, during which the cap is managed using a combination of aerative pumping over as well as regular plunging by hand. After fermentation about 25% of the components experienced a period of extended maceration, being left on skins for 4 weeks before a very gentle pressing. MLF takes place in a combination of tank and barrel. The wine was matured for 14 months in French oak (40% new barriques) before the blend was assembled.
