Skillogalee Winery The Cabernets 2016 Clare Valley
A very attractive mostly Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the cool Clare valley.
Dave and Diana Palmer's The Cabernet comes from an un-irrigated site 450m up in the cool Clare Valley. The vines, 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec are just over 40 years old so give plenty of flavour and depth. After hand picking the grapes are vinified in open fermenters before basket pressing and run off into French oak hogsheads for their second fermentatiom and aging for 24 months before bottling
