Product Description

Churchview Bartondale Cabernet 2012

The South Western area of our block 31 grows Cabernet vines which are slightly stressed, this has a split canopy to increase sunlight interception on the fuit zone to encourage earlier ripening.
We selectively harvest, by hand the top end of this block to become the Bartondale. We spur prune

The fruit were only partially crushed and had 3 days of cold soaking at 5 degrees before fermentation. 40 days of extended skin contact followed before pressing into new and used Frenck Oak barriiques
for 18 months maturation. Careful barrel selection then takes place and only 11 of 28 barrels were tasting

Colour : A bright and vibrant deep red with purple rim

Aroma : A classic Margaret River Cabernet, clean and intense with blackcurrents, plums and black cherries leading the way. Chasis, some cigar box and earthy spice follows and a subtle yet detectable hint of eucalyptus. This wine continues to open in the glass.

Palate : A pronounced intensity of those dark fruits that were detected on the nose are followed by subtle black olives, nutmeg, liquorise, cocoa and eucalyptus on the mid palate.

Food Match This is Excellent with all red meats, roasts and hearty meals.

Cellar This wine will develop gracefully in the right conditions for 10 + years
