Robert Oatley The Pennant Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Robert Oatley's The Pennant Cabernet Sauvignon stands at the pinnacle of the Oatley family’s winemaking expression. Handmade, produced in very limited quantities and only from the best barrels of the most prized vineyard blocks. The grapes for the Pennant Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from Block 12 of the 50 year old Justin vineyard at Frankland River in Western Australia. All were hand picked, and once at the winery the berries run down an individual berry sorting table into small vessels to macerate and ferment on skins for 4-6 weeks. Matured for eighteen months in new and 1 year old tight grained low toast French oak, prior to rigorous barrel selection to complete this final blend. Only 6 barrels were produced of this vintage. Brooding and exuberant with dark fruits and complex, luxurious long finish. Blackcurrant characters, soft tannins and all round exceptional quality this will reward cellaring for another 15 years.
