Bec Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 Dozen
Jane Masters, UK Master of Wine: “A flavoursome wine with juicy dark fruits, blueberries, and black cherries. It is supple, medium bodied with a firm finish, and was produced from Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot with some American and French oak seasoning” (screwcap)
VINTAGE: The start of the 2020 growing season was dry with warmer than average temperatures. Heat and wind during flowering led to lower fruit set and subsequently lower yields at harvest. The temperatures became milder from late January, allowing the vines to recover and helping maintain acidity. Although crops were down considerably this vintage, they quality has been fantastic.
STORY: They say that a parent doesn’t have a favourite child, but Cabernet Sauvignon has always secretly been one of ours!
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 2027.
