2016 Sorby Adams Isolde Cabernet Sauvignon

Barossa - Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyards: Barossa Eden Valley

Season:The 2016 vintage had a dry start through the winter, followed by a warm spring. This encouraged flowering to begin with a high expectation of flowers developing into fruit set. Minimal disease pressure was a positive but challenging with the summer season; dry and extremely hot. By the end of December some rain was received with a decent rainfall in March. The vintage harvest was earlier than expected but given the warm and dry season was a relief to grapevines; in particular old dry grown vines.
