Stony Brook Ghost Gum Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Dark berry fruit and toasted caramel on the nose, with subtle oak in the background. On the palate it shows Stony Brook's trademark richness and volume, with tannins that are already integrated and seamless. A voluptuous and moreish Cabernet Sauvignon with great ageing potential, but also the ability to be enjoyed in its youth with the right food.
This single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was carefully managed to produce extremely small volumes of exceptionally concentrated grapes. The bunches were harvested by hand at full ripeness, before being hand-sorted and cold macerated for 6 days. The individual berries were then fermented in stainless steel and transferred into 100% new French oak barriques for a total of 32 months, where the wine underwent a spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
