Seppelt Dorrien Cabernet Sauvignon
(search item no. 20294)

PRICE ON 7/31/2014: $30.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Deep, rich red with crimson hues.

Nose: Superb integration of fruit and oak provides a wine of unforgettable complexity. Ripe berry fruit and barrel fermentation have produced nutty, spicy aromas and as it breathes, more dark chocolate Cabernet and toasty, smoky oak characters are revealed.

Palate: This full bodied wine has great fruit intensity showing ripe berry, cassis, plums and earthy characters. It features skilful oak handling and soft attractive tannins with vanillin and berry flavours on the long, lingering finish.

Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: In the classic Dorrien style, this wine will age gracefully and reward careful cellaring. A wine with a great drinking future, it may also be enjoyed now with beef or venison.

My Notes:

About Seppelt:

Long known for its pioneering spirit , Seppelt has developed several previously untrialed vineyard areas around Australia. With much research into the topography, soils and microclimates of these regions Seppelt is able to gain greater insight into the final fruit quality and varietal characters that are borne. The company grows a high proportion of its own grapes and has a sizeable commitment to vineyards. Seppelt pioneered southern grape growing such as Padthaway and Drumborg twenty years before the term 'cool-climate' became fashionable, and was an early proponent of Chardonnay.
