Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Tahbilk has some 28 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on the Estate with the oldest vines dating back to 1949. Made utilising traditional Tahbilk techniques; fermentation takes place in 150 year old open vats, before maturation in predominantly French oak for 18 months prior to bottling. Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon releases have consistently shown considerable richness and character over time and are considered by many experts to be the best Estate red for long term cellaring. Distinctive cassis, dark plum and mulberry notes are enhanced by nuances of Asian 5 spice, mint and touches of mocha. Deliciously approachable now, a ripe tannic grip underpins the fruit and leads to a hint of spice on the persistent finish.
