Pertaringa Understudy Cabernet Sauvignon 2022
Region: McLaren Vale
Story: This wine is a long-standing family favourite. An ‘understudy’ to our Rifle & Hunt Cabernet Sauvignon but certainly no second fiddle!
Vinyard: This Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is sourced from two vineyards, the Picnic Ground vineyard (once owned by Thomas Hardy and named after the picnics they used to hold there) located in Blewitt Springs and the Klaveniek vineyard on McMurtrie Road.
Soil: The Picnic Ground vineyard is on Maslin Sands, aged between 34 and 56 million years old, and the Klaveniek vineyard is on Ngaltinga Formation (10,000 to 2.6 million years old).
Harvest Date: 21 March (Picnic Grounds), 23 March (Klaveniek)
Nose: Aromatic varietal nose of cassis and spice.
Palate: Blackcurrent fruits fill the palate. Structured tannins provide elegence and length. Understudy is a sophisticated Cabernet but still offers the fruit generosity and weight that is hallmark of all Pertaringa wines.
Winemaking: All parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon were fermented and matured in seasoned French oak for 15 months separately.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2032
