2012 'Ohiti Estate' Cabernet Sauvignon

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage: 2012
Volume: 750 ml

Ohiti Estate lies in an inland heat trap on the bed of the old Ngaruroro River. Made using traditional Bordeaux pump over methods for cap management. Malolactic fermentation occurred after pressing, prior to going into oak barrels for 12 months.

Tasting Note:
Typically dark in colour for a Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 'Ohiti Estate' Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits ripe cassis and blackberry on a back ground of French and American oak. This wine very much reflects the vineyard from which it is grown. This red wine is bottled sunshine, and 'Ohiti Estate' is a very hot vineyard, thus capturing more than its fare share of the Hawke's Bay sun!

Accompaniment:
Aged Angus fillet steak, with ratatouille crust - enjoy!
