2014 Mythology Cabernet
Intense crimson red.
Complex medley of blackberries and dark summer berries, with a touch of fresh mint and tobacco leaf.
Dense dark fruits with brilliantly aromatics of raspberries and plums, dark chocolate and vanilla bean. Full bodied with lovely tannins, complemented by well-balanced French oak and a wonderfully long structured finish.
Quite a wet winter was followed by intense heat mid summer, leading to lower than average yields. This was followed by the longest ripening period in quite a few years, finishing well into May for some varieties.
The selected parcels of ultra-premium fruit from the sub-regions of Race-course and Glenroy were picked in the last week of April, and were fer-mented individually in 4.5t open fermenters. The wines were pressed off to barrel to complete primary alcoholic and malolactic fermentation and ini-tially matured separately for 18 months. Primary blending and a further 22 months of maturation have allowed the individual components to harmo-nise into a balanced yet powerful wine.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 15 years.
Wood fired goat shoulder marinated in Baharat (Lebanese seven spice), garlic, and preserved lemon.
