2015 Mythology Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense crimson red with purple hues.
Dense dark fruits with brilliantly aromatics of plums, fresh mint and tobacco leaf.
Intensely flavoured with chocolate-coated blackberries, currants, mint leaf and refreshing leafy cabernet nuances. It’s full bodied and rich, with the cedary sweet toasty French oak adding another layer.
A winter with average rainfall was followed by a not so typical Spring. Spring being very dry and one of Coonawarra’s warmest, advancing flowering by 2 weeks. Fortunately the warm and dry flowering promoted a fast and even berry set. This warm flowering provided even maturity at harvest with no green ber-ries.
The selected parcels of ultra-premium fruit from the sub-regions of Racecourse and Glenroy were picked in the last week of April, and were fermented individ-ually in 4.5t open fermenters. The wines were pressed off to barrel to complete primary alcoholic and malolactic fermentation and initially matured separately for 18 months. Primary blending and a further 22 months of maturation have allowed the individual components to harmonise into a balanced yet powerful wine.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 20+ years.
Braised beef, moussaka, lamb roast or bacon and cheese burger.
