Brookford Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 offers lots of berries and plum fruit, with spicy notes on the nose. A flavoursome palate with rustic blackberry and currant fruit flavours, which merge well into lingering oak flavours and some minty freshness with balanced tannins.
Offering contemporary Australian wines from the Riverina region in New South Wales. These wines are made by talented winemaker Carmelo D’Aquino and show excellent body, upfront fruit and well defined structure. For the Brookford Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 grapes are specially selected from small parcels of vines from South Eastern Australia.
Summer started with cool mornings and nights, with slow ripening producing excellent fruit with no diseases. The Shiraz is grown on loam soils. The vines are trained to a double cordon with a single foliage wire. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on clay loam soil with a thin top layer of limestone gravel. The vines are carefully cultivated to our specifications, with low yields producing intensely-flavoured grapes of outstanding quality.
Both the Shiraz and Cabernet grapes were harvested at over 13.0Be, as flavours became balanced. The must was fermented at temperatures, between 25 and 28 degrees in order to help extract flavour and colour components from the grape skins. The skins were then gently pressed with only the free run fraction being kept ensuring that so tannins would be present in the final wine.
