Charles Sturt University at Wagga Wagga saw its first plantings of vine in 1893. While today's students are very closely involved in the vitculture and elevage, the ultimate quality of wine is determined by a highly accomplished team of industry identities. Producing less than 10,000 dozen annually, the limited yields make possible, a highly selective sourcing of fruit and the most exacting standards of vinification. The result is a richly flavoured yet impeccably balanced accord of profound Cabernet Sauvignon structure in support of elegant Merlot succulence.
Charles Sturt University is an integral part of the nation's leading wine science school, completely at the forefront of leading viticultural advances and the world's best practice winemaking techniques. A backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon from excellent sites in the Hilltops region is enhanced by a component of fruit from the University. Merlot is sourced from the Charles Sturt vineyards at Orange and choice properties in Wagga Wagga. A harvest of very small berries exhibiting a concentration of dark fruit flavours is treated to a mix of new and old world techniques. The finished wine is matured for a year in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Dark ruby scarlet hue. Blackcurrant nose supported by background oak and plum inspired licorice spice notes. An accord of exquisite harmony, the Cabernet defining perfect acid to fruit balance within a sound palate structure. Sweet blackcurrant and blackberry flavours are underpinned by well integrated oak, before a lingering finish on a length of fine, velvety tannins.
