Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Current Vintage: 2016
Bottle Size: 750ml
Case Size: 12
This is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon wine displaying a deep red hue. Aromas of ripe berries and lifted pepper spice form the elegant bouquet. The palate is medium to full bodied, brimming with vibrant flavours of ripe berries, chocolate and coffee bean. The aromas and flavours come together to culminate in a long and tannin filled finale. This intense yet sweet flavoured wine is ideal for consumption upon release, but can also be cellared carefully for 5 to 7 years.
In 1499 the Cardinal de Medici allocated Paolo Curtis the authority to administer the Papal lands in the area around Cervaro. Upon these rich soils they established vineyards and olive groves, which are still farmed by the family. They became major wine producing families, selling to large city merchants from Naples and Rome. The Second World War took its toll upon the buildings used as a winery and barrel storage, but more destructive was the introduction of the Phylloxera grape vine louse, badly damaging the vineyards. Some were replanted and are harvested today. It was whilst the later replanting was taking place that the young Claudio Curtis first became involved in vineyards. While his parents tendered the newly growing vines, Claudio tried to help by removing the growing shoots. The Curtis Family have been growning grapes and making wine in McLaren Vale since 1973.
Today the Curtis Family are concentrating on developing complex premium wines for the Australian market. Premium wines that show the Curtis Family passion for great McLaren Vale Wines.
The perfect red varietal to enjoy with porcini mushroom, garlic chicken wings and mini buffalo sliders.
