ANGULLONG CROSSING RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2018
|Origin:||Orange, NSW, Australia
|Colour:||Dark purple red|
|Aromas:||Attractive savoury complex aromas of herbs, leather and dark berries complemented by oak.|
|Flavours:||A full bodied wine which is rich and plush with juicy berry fruit
and balanced oak flavours. The tannins are velvety and
balanced with a slight grip on the long, lingering finish.
This is an intensively flavoured Orange Region Cabernet, indicative of its Reserve status. Sweet, complex fruit flavours with a tight structure. The cool climate varietal flavours are balanced beautifully. The length is long and velvety with the oak and dusty tannins adding complex layers.
Enjoy this wine now, or cellar it confidently up until 2030.
The best Cabernet Sauvignon from the Angullong vineyard was fermented with a submerged cap with twice daily pump-overs to extract colour and flavour. The wine was then matured in premium oak puncheons (30% new, 70% 2-3 year old) for 12 months.
