Robert Oatley - Hancock and Hancock - Cabernet Sauvignon/Touriga 2014Intriguing Rusticity
Blackcurrant and crushed leaf flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon mixed with perfume of violets from savoury Touriga create unique, satisfying red.
Harvested fully ripe, individual varietal parcels were processed separately, crushed to a combination of open and closed fermenters, with regular pump-overs and plunging during fermentation.
Pressed to stainless steel tanks where the wine underwent its secondary malolactic fermentation then rolled down to a mixture of barrique, hogshead and large format French oak.
Blending was completed on the bench, working with individual components to create the final blend.
