The Nugan Estate Single Vineyard Collection is our label dedicated to showcasing the best varietals from Australia’s finest wine growing regions. The winemaking team work hard to craft each Alcira Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon wine to reflect its unique varietal and regional characteristics.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the classic Coonawarra region of South Australia. Once harvested, the parcels were destemmed and chilled.
After a two day cold soak, the parcel was inoculated with a pure yeast culture. Fermentation was undertaken in Vinimatics and static fermenters with manual pump overs every 6 hours. Upon completion of alcoholic fermentation, the wine remained on skins for a further two days before being pressed into American and French hogsheads for 14 months maturation.
Deep purple with vibrant hues. Enticing aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry melded with hints of mint, leather, cedar earth and all spice. The palate displays intense flavours of dark berries, vibrant cassis fruit, followed by velvety tannins and subtle oak accompaniment.
