Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon are vinified for a fortnight in open top fermenters while being gently pumped over to treat the fermenting juices back into the skins, extracting flavour and just the right amount of tannins. Upon completion, components are matured in a selection of fine oak barrels to integrate fruit characters and tame the firm Cabernet tannins.
Purple coloured with darker hues. Currants, strawberries and plum seasoned by varietal green leaf characters behind the deep blue berry fragrances. A well integrated palate of lively varietal fruit flavours, black cherry, cassis, cocoa and plums supported by subtle hints of vanillin, tobacco and fennel. A dry, lingering finish with fine cleansing acidity makes Mountadam the perfect match to braised beef and wide ribbon tomato pasta.
