2014 FOUR CHAMBERS CABERNET SHIRAZ
2014 Four Chambers Cabernet Shiraz
- "Top 100 Red Wines 2016" The West Australian
- 94pts Ray Jordan 2016
Medium red with a purple edge. Red cherry, dark plums and a spicy edge lift from the glass while more delicate aromas of violets and white pepper together with subtle smoky/savoury notes add further layers of complexity. Delicate red berry fruits fill the palate while ripe, elegant yet firm tannins add structure and texture. Red cherry flavours linger in the mouth giving length and purity while the spicy/savoury notes emanating from the oak displays finesse.
The fruit was gently machine harvested and processed into red fermenters then tenderly pumped over 3 times a day during fermentation to maximize colour extraction. Gentle handling of the fruit and wine ensures varietal character and freshness is maintained.
