Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at its finest, harvested off the splendid Kirrihill Tullymore property in the northeastern foothills. Planted at an elevation of 450 metres, to deep red loam and quartz volcanic rock soils on east facing slopes, Tullymore is one of the most opportune sites in Clare to grow Cabernet, it has been the source of eminent, national wine show winning vintages, ever since inaugural release. A long lived wine with succulent tannins and judicious oak, Kirrihill represents a memorable experience of Cabernet Sauvignon, especially in its youth.
The state of art Kirrihill operation places an emphasis on environmentally sound practices, recycling waste water and grape marc into organic mulch for the vineyards. Cutting edge trellising technology provides the perfect balance of shade and sunlight. Vines are planted to a north south orientation on red clay loam over limestone soils at 450 metres above sea level. Grapes are cold soaked for five days, warmed up and vinified in open top fermenters with daily pumpovers to maximise extractions. The musts are pressed off and the wine transferred to a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak. Barrels are rigorously selected to ensure that only the best are included in the final assemblage.
TASTING NOTES
A vibrant deep red in the glass. The classic Clare Cabernet characters of blackcurrant, plum, cassis and crushed violets on the nose with enticing cedary notes. Palate features black ripe berries, herb, mulberries and plum with well integrated oak framed by elegant tannins. Impossible to put down, as intense fruit and substantial palate weight continue to a warm, lingering finish.
