The grapes for the Stomper’s Cabernet Sauvignon from Nugan Estate grow in the Riverina. Mild temperatures at the beginning of the season provide a long ripening period which allow for slow even ripening. Additionally to this, is the development of high quality fruit. Once we harvest the grapes, we destem and chill the small parcels of fruit. Fermentation of this wine takes place in small static fermenters. After this, the wine is then pressed out into a combination of French and American oak barrels for a further 12 months maturation.
