Nocturne 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)Nocturne Wines
Style: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Margaret River
The fruit was picked relatively early on 13th March with lovely vibrancy and red fruit flavours. The bunches were destemmed and the grapes fermented in 4.5-tonne static fermenters. After 15 days on skins and a peak ferment temperature of around 26 degrees Celsius, the wine was pressed to tank, settled briefly and transferred to a combination of new (25%) and two-year-old barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once during that time and was then, after 16 months in oak, emptied from barrel, settled , clarified and bottled unfiltered.
