40% Clare Valley

Tasting Notes:

The Taylor's Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby red colour to the centre with a youthful purple hue to the edges.

There are lifted aromas of dark blackcurrant fruit along with subtle choc-mint and a hint of eucalypt.

On the palate, Taylor's Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf.

Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex, well-integrated, elegant tannins providing structure and an intense, persistent length to the finish.

Vintage Notes:

Coonawarra received good winter rains leading into the growing season. A cool and dry April was perfect for ripening, allowing full flavour development and optimal sugar levels. Yields of red wine varieties were average to slightly below the long-term averages. All in all, winemakers have declared the vintage 2019 in Coonawarra to be excellent. In the Clare Valley, the growing season leading up to vintage saw lower than average winter and spring rainfall.

This, along with some hail and frost events, affected yields overall. There were some extreme weather conditions during the growing season, including the lowest temperature recorded in spring and the highest ever temperature in summer, but overall, the vines showed great resilience and wine quality is excellent across the classic varieties.

Oak Maturation:

The wine was matured in French oak barrels (50% 1 year old, 50% a combination of 2 and 3 year old) for a period of 10 – 12 months before being bottled.

Cellaring Notes:

Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
