2014 Streicker Ironstone Block Cabernet Sauvignon (12x 750ml)

12 bottles

In stock.

Colour: Dark crimson wine with purple hues.
Nose: Rich array of cedar, blackcurrant and mulberry aromas; perfumed hints of plum blossom, ground coffee and blueberry. 
Palate: A powerful, dark fruit beginning is driven by luscious fine-grained tannin complemented by a lively red fruit acidity and black fruit opulence. 

Winemaking note: The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and the berries just split to allow for minimal breakdown of the skin and to preserve the natural fruit freshness. The grapes were pumped over three times a day for 18 days, after which the wine was separated from the skins and allowed to finish fermentation in premium French oak barriques. The wine is aged in 45% new oak barrels for 18 months then blended, clarified and bottled.

Vintage note: The start of the growing season in 2012 provided the ideal maritime “classic” for the 2013 vintage. It began with a wet July, a drier than average August, a wet September with only moderate falls in Oct and November and slightly above average falls in December. The new year blessed with a perfect Indian summer, characterised by sunny days until early April. The relatively dry end to the growing season, combined with warmer than long term mean temperatures in January and Feb set up for some spectacular ripening conditions. The early season warmth corresponded to early ripening of the whites and the early ripening of tannins in the reds, a very desirable character. The slightly cooler temperature for March allowed gentle and complete ripening of the reds, a real plus for the region.
