Fallen Giants Vineyard

2015 Cabernet

The cabernet was planted along with the Shiraz in 1969. Harvested at the end of April, the Fallen Giants block is very low yielding producing 1.4 tonne to the acre.

The Cabernet was fermented in open fermenters with a long cold soak and extended maceration. Plunging was done twice a day ensuring nice colour and fine tannin.

Product Description

2014 Fallen Giants Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – Reviews

Cassis, rather than blackcurrant, comes through strongly on the bouquet, and medium-bodied palate; the tannins are present, as they should be, but are so fine they are friendly, an uncommon trait with cabernet directing the traffic. It all adds up to a rare beast: a cabernet that leads you on and does not turn you away.
James Halliday – 94 points, 5 Star Winery

Fluidity is the key. This is a wine of structure and class but both its quality and drinkability are linked directly to the flow of it, the balance, the sensation of softness as the flavours roll through the mouth. We’re looking at blackberry and boysenberry as much as blackcurrant; spicy herbs; lead pencil and a general suggestion of savouriness. It’s juicy. It’s incredibly well balanced. It doesn’t scream cabernet but it leads you in that direction. It’s pretty much bang on. Campbell Mattinson – 93+ points, The Wine Front
