Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek South Australia
The very limited release Walter Reserve is a wine of stature and opulence, an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon grown to the rich, predisposed soils of Langhorne Creek. Assembled from a fastidious selection of the best barrels Cabernet, all originating from the estate's superlative vineyards, nourished by the flooding of Bremer River. Bremerton are in a unique position to keep all the individual parcels of Cabernet separate until completion, for the purpose of isolating the most exceptional lots, from the time of picking through to vinification and maturation.
The winemaking team headed by Rebecca Willson has taken the quality of Bremerton wines to stellar heights. Willson crafts traditional, full bodied, full flavoured, mouth filling Langhorne Creek wines that show a consistency of style, whilst encouraging the true varietal Cabernet characteristics to be expressed. Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented in open vats before being matured two years in completely new French oak. Following some barrel age, each parcel is assessed, the most outstanding parcels are treated to a further term of age before being assembled into the final wine. A term of bottle maturation, up to two years before release totally integrates the tannins, achieving remarkable flavour development.
Deep crimson colour. A powerful yet elegant wine, bouquet of blackberry, bramble and earthy notes. A firm and brilliantly integrated palate, showing dried herbs, lavendar and cassis, dark chocolate and spice meld seamlessly. Fine elegant tannins encapsulate the flavours, adding layers of length and persistence. The refined tannin structure provides an elegantly composed wine that drinks beautifully on release.
