Grant Burge `Portee Station` Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (12 x 750mL), SA.

NB Actual bottle design/Label design may differ to that which is advertised.

Portee Station has a long history, as one of the earliest areas of settlement in South Australia, outside of the city of Adelaide. Situated in outback country, the magnificent homestead was built in 1873 on a floodplain near the River.

The Fruit

The 2016 vintage saw cool winter with average rainfall, very dry warm spring followed by a cooler than average December/January which helped maintain fruit quality and acid retention. February was hot with daytime temperatures 3-4 degrees above average causing rapid ripening; March was quite mild allowing good ripening conditions for the balance of the vintage.

The Winemaking

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed, before being fermentation in stainless steel tanks for seven days. To ensure good colour and full flavour, the wine was carefully pumped over three times a day.
