About The Evans & Tate: This wine is a celebration of an exceptional vintage for the King of grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and our home in the heart of the pristine Margaret river wine region. The Evans & Tate is a testament to our regions unique character and over 40 years experience crafting award winning wines.

TASTING NOTE:

Colour: Inky purple red with a vibrant purple rim.

Aroma: The darker Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon characters are evident in this wine from the exceptional 2012 vintage, fresh blackberry, juicy mulberry and plum with lovely violet perfume and an elegant layer of cedar and freshly toasted savoury spices

Palate: The wine has lovely tannin structure which is critical to our style and a hallmark of this noble variety, something that will also put it in good stead for extended cellaring.

Vinification and Maturation:

Handpicked fruit was gently destemmed with the whole berries then being loaded into a small static fermenter. The must was cold soaked at 8C for 5 days pre-fermentation before being allowed to naturally warm up slowly with a wild fermentation start before being seeded with a neutral pure yeast strain.

A strong, healthy fermentation followed. The fermentation lasted 10 days with the wine left on skins for an additional 12 days to achieve the desired structure and style. At pressing, it was decided that 100% of the pressings fraction was to be returned into the free-run to give body and balance.

The wine then underwent malo-lactic fermentation in barrel and maturation for 17 months, 100% very fine grained French oak hogsheads (300L). A light fining with fresh, local free-range egg whites was undertaken just prior to bottling followed by extended maturation in bottle prior to release in September 2015.

pH: 3.3

Acidity: 7.16g/L

Peak Drinking: Will cellar beyond 2028

Wine Maker: Matt Byrne

VINTAGE CONDITIONS:
