From Printhie’s oldest vines, now more than 20 years old. A mix of open and static fermenters, 10 days on skins during ferment, matured in French and American oak for 10 months. Bright red colour. Classic Cabernet fruit profile with great purity and intensity but without a coating of heavy oak or masses of tannin. Bright, fresh drinkability with terrific palate balance.
Alc – 13.0% pH - 3.72 TA – 6.2gL RS – 0.9gL
Very attractive on release as a young wine but will develop some typical Cabernet bottle aged character of tobacco leaf and earthiness with 2-3 years in the cellar.
