Angove Organic Shiraz Cabernet 2018

Angove Family Winemakers is one of Australia’s leading Organic winemakers. Sourced from our own organically certified Nanya vineyard and premium certified Organic growers in the McLaren Vale region.
Vintage 2018 was back to a a more typical ripening pattern due to a mild lead in to spring and then moderate temperatures through out the growing season with minimal heat spikes. Many varieties were ready to harvest at the same time however, putting pressure on our vineyard teams. These conditons were welcome but highlighted the importance of well managed viticultural and irrigation practices. With exeptional care we were able to ride the wave of grapes coming at us and deliver fi rst quality fruit to the winery.
The grapes for this wine were harvested at night to make sure that they were as cool as possible. Crushed to ‘sweeparm’ fermenters the grapes were then allowed to cold macerate for 2 days prior to inoculation and fermentation. Pressed off skins when optimum flavour and colour levels were achieved, the second malolactic fermentation occured under strict temperature control to ensure flavour and colour were retained. Stored in seasoned oak barrels until assemblage the wine has then had minimal handling prior to filtration for bottling at our certified Organic winery.
