2010 Gatt Wines High Eden Cabernet

Vineyard: 100% Estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon handpicked from Eden Springs/Gatt Vineyard. Beautiful cool climate country at High Eden, the pinnacle of Barossa. Altitude 460-515m

Season: The Barossa experienced its best rainfall in five years during the Winter and Spring. A warm, mild season of cool nights for even and consistent ripening followed. Ideal fruit to canopy balance yielded grapes with intense character and varietal expression.

Winemaking: Minimal intervention, destemmed and fermented on skins for 7 days with pump overs twice daily. Handcrafted in small parcels to exacting quality standards in our state of the art wine making facility. Malolactic fermentation and maturation in barrel. Blended and lightly filtered before bottling.

Maturation: 10 months in 100% new French oak 300L barrels.

Appearance: Deep purple with dense, dark chocolate core.

Aroma/Bouquet: Beautifully fragrant violet, blackcurrant, bouquet garni and sage.

Palate: A stunning wine of ethereal elegance and deep seated power. Bright blueberry and cherry flavours layered with notes of cedar and Asiatic spice. Pure varietal character underpinned by fine, velvet tannins with intense concentration and incredible length from perfectly ripe High Eden Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cellar: Long term cellaring potential, peak drinking now, up to 2030.

Food pairing: Richly flavoured dishes, red meats and game. Lamb, beef, venison, goat, pheasant. Red wine, earthy and reduction sauces. Mushroom, truffles, green beans, asparagus.
