Winemaker Notes:

The Nugan family emigrated from Spain to Australia in 1938 and Third Generation family member Matthew Nugan proudly carries on his family’s legacy. The Third Generation range varietally correct to the fruit. The wines all maintain a fruit forward nose and palate, designed for every (other) day drinking without fuss. We grow the grapes for our Third Generation Cabernet Sauvignon in the warm, sunny region of the Riverina.

To achieve optimum ripeness the fruit was harvested in the cool of the night preserving delicate fruit flavors. After picking, the fruit was crushed and fermented in static tanks with automatic irrigation. Selected parcels received American oak treatment during fermentation to add complexity and structure.
