23 May Wine of the month: 2014 Chaff Mill Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine of the month: 2014 Chaff Mill Cabernet Sauvignon
When its starting to come in a little cold, we love nothing more than sitting down to a nice big glass of Cab Sauv and to be honest, the 2014 Chaff Mill is one of our favourites.
The Cabernet fruit bunches are smaller than most of our vines and more spindly, which makes for a more concentrated wine.
The vines are some of our oldest at around 70 years old, giving the wine great complexity and depth of flavour.
The varietal aromas shine through with blackberry, green capsicum and dusty notes adding complexity.
The palate is full but balanced; the chalky tannins give this wine a gnarly palate grip.
Excellent cellar life potential, can be put down for approximately 15 years.
Double Gold at the China Wine and Spirit Awards.
Our beautiful little, ironstone cellar door was once upon a time a Chaff Mill and that’s where the name for this stunning wine originates! Previous to that is was a quaint cottage that was built in the early 1800’s.
Pair with Smokey American Pork Ribs with Rustic Coleslaw.
