Longview Devils Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
Longview Estates falls within Adelaide Hill`s cool-climate sites. Most of the rainfall occurs during the winter months, while the summers are warm and dry and the vineyards are cooled by the winds coming off of Lake Alexandrina to the east and the coast to the South. These are ideal conditions for the development of flavours, aromatics, depth and structure in wine grapes.
Devil’s Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced entirely from Longview’s vineyard at Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked to minimise fruit damage, then fermented on skins for 7 days. After maloactic fermentation, the wine was aged in old and new French oak barriques for 20 months. Aromas of black current, clove, mint and spiced dark cherry. It has toasty oak characters, perfectly balanced tannin and a long clean finish. Excellent to drink now, but has the structure to develop for the next twelve years or so.
