Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  433045

Includes 5% malbec and 3% petit verdot, crushed and destemmed, a wine of many components, mainly small batch ferments (static and open fermenters), pumping over and plunging, part extended maceration (4 weeks), matured for 12 months in French oak (40% new). Focused and powerful, the deep but bright colour a come-on. Cassis is given context by cabernet tannins, which are firm, not dry. Drink by:2041. Score - 95.
