2018 7TH GENERATION CABERNET SAUVIGNON
GRAPES FOR THIS WINE ARE GROWN ON OUR ESTATE BLOCK FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE ‘COW PADDOCK’. AS A YOUNG BOY, JOHN JENKE LEFT HIS MILKING COWS TO GRAZE HERE DURING THE DAY WHILE HE ATTENDED THE ROWLAND FLAT SCHOOL ACROSS THE ROAD.
This wine is rich and full bodied with “cassis” aroma which is classical of the Cabernet Sauvignon variety. Colour: Medium – deep brick red/blue. Cabernet Sauvignon is arguably the “King of Red Grapes” and is well suited to growing on the Jenke Vineyards Estate at Rowland Flat. The wine was fermented on skins for 8 days during which it was pumped over twice daily to extract colour and tannins. Free run and press fractions were blended together. Maturation in 60% new French oak barrels from Heinrich Cooperage, Tanunda and 40% aged barrels for 12 months has imparted fine silky tannins. The wine was bottled in July 2019. Further bottle ageing will reward you with complex mature flavours.
