Nugan Estate SV Stomper’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2022

Country: Australia
Winery: Nugan
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
UPC Code: 8 31881 00079 3
Tasting Notes:

This wine is brooding purple in appearance, with a youthful garnet hue. Sweet, dark berry fruit aromas entwine with milk chocolate and allspice, leading to seductive flavours of blackcurrant compote and velvety, supple tannins.

Winemaker Notes:

My mother can be an intimidating person and there’s a few blokes that still wish they’d never given her a hard time. That said, our one vineyard manager named Stomper seems to have found a way to sidestep her wrath with his seemingly carefree attitude. We call him Stomper because the whole building shakes when he walks in, and he leaves mud everywhere because he’s too lazy to wipe his feet. And he keeps doing it!

This premium parcel of Cabernet was mechanically harvested in the cool of the night and delivered to Nugan Estate winery for destemming and cold maceration for 48 hours at 10°C. Whole berry primary fermentation took place in small static fermenters at 24°C, with a specialized yeast strain that enhances berry fruit and minimizes vegetative notes. The wine remains on skins for 10 days, prior to pressing to French Oak for 12 months maturation.
