Paulmara Apotigi Cabernet Sauv 2018

  • Regular price $89.99

This fruit is sourced from a single vineyard located the heart of Marananga on the renowned western ridge of the Barossa Valley, where the soils are predominantly red-brown loams over red clay, amidst shattered ironstone and quartz.

Daily sampling and tasting of the Cabernet grapes ensured that they were picked at optimal flavour ripeness. The Grapes were hand harvested and were destemmed and crushed into a single 5 tonne open top fermenter where twice daily pump overs were conducted to ensure maximum extraction of colour, flavour and tannins from the grape skins. At the conclusion of fermentation, the wine underwent post ferment maceration on grape skins for 13 days before the wine was pressed to 100% new French oak hogshead barrels for 19 months. Each barrel was tasted and careful selection took place before the final wine was blended. The wine is neither fined, nor filtered.
