Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2009 Knappstein Reserve Blend Cabernet Shiraz exhibits lifted black current and black berry fruits with rich cedary oak.

Palate

The palate displays concentrated cassis fruit, it is rich and full with ripe yet fine tannins which are complemented by elegant French oak.

Winemaking Notes

The wine was made with minimal intervention to preserve fruit purity. Fermentation occurred in static fermenters (potter) and open fermenters allowing for gentle extraction of flavours and texture through pumping over and hand plunging four times daily. The ferments lasted between 14-18 days. The skins were then pressed and wine allowed to settle before being transferred to barrel.

Vineyards

The fruit for this wine is sourced from our own Yertabulti, Enterprise and Ackland vineyards. We also use a couple of carefully selected growers from a little further north in the Clare Valley. The diverse range of vineyards contribute to the rich texture and flavours of the wine.

Cellaring Potential

This wine will reward ageing for up to 6 years.
