Bec Hardy Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Story: This wine region is located in the south east of South Australia, this southerly location means nights are cool so the grapes retain their natural acidity, and ripen slowly, making long lived wines with plenty of flavour and fantastic length.
Vintage: The 2021 vintage was an excellent one on the Limestone Coast. Weather during flowering was ideal for good fruit set. The season was relatively mild with only one day of reasonably intense heat (in late January), rain was also minimal meaning minimal disease pressure. The conditions from late February through to April allowed the red varieties to ripen slowly so winemakers could pick at optimum ripeness. The reds have exceptional colour, intensity and great fruit expression.
Winemaking: Crushed and destemmed before fermentation in a static stainless steel fermenter. It spent 9 days on skins before draining off the wine for maturation. Oak was predominantly French Oak.
Nose: The nose displays beautifully complex notes of plums, blackberries and a hint of cassis.
Palate: The palate is smooth and well-rounded with plenty of blackberries and plums, complemented by well-integrated tannins.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2029
