Wills Domain Cuvée d’ Élevage Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Deep Ruby purple
Violets, cherries and an underlay of graphite and blackberries.
Thick yet poised, boasting concentrated black fruits with fine-boned tannins adding structure and drive. Fine tannin on the finish, supporting bristling red fruit flavour and embedded French Oak.
Pristine fruit was picked, destemmed and lightly crushed in the early hours of the morning, after which fermentation begins and is held at a maximum of 25°C for its duration. Rigorous pump-overs three times a day the wine was gently separated from the skin and transferred to French Oak barriques, to complete fermentation.
Chargrilled beef, long braised meats.
