Skillogalee - Hand Picked Cabernet Malbec Rose 2012-13South Australian Wine
The wine shows fresh raspberry and cranberry on the nose. The palate is fresh and lively, held together by a fine structure of natural acid and fine tannin balance.
This wine is best served chilled, especially during the warmer months and is a great match for most food styles, particularly fresh seafood and contemporary Asian cuisine.
All fruit was blended at the receival bin, destemmed and chilled to 5 degrees C. To achieve the desirable level of colour and flavour extraction the fruit was left on skins for 16 hours in the press. The free-run juice and light pressings were then cold settled, racked and fermented cool to express the clean fruit characters of both the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Malbec.
Grape: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec.
