Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia
Vitulus provides an entry level to the Reschke family of statuesque Cabernet wines. Vitulus is barrel matured without being heavily oaked. The aim is for roundness and length derived from time spent in barrel, but not to interfere too much with the complex, defined fruit characters which are the hallmark of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Its judicious level of natural acidity will see Vitulus develop slowly and gracefully, achieving great complexity as exciting cigarbox and chocolate characters evolve.
Intense colour, almost black with crimson edges. Aromas of plum, cassis and cedar with some stalk. Sweet blackcurrant on the palate, blackberry and dark chocolate flavours upfront followed by stalk and savoury characters. A well rounded Cabernet wine, soft in texture, offering plenty of cassis and spicy, almost peppery flavours. The structure is firm but not astringent, plush and soothing whilst offering great length.
