New South Wales
Nugan Estate is the Nugan family’s winery dedicated to producing premium estate grown wines from the family’s vineyards across Australia. Today Nugan Estate owns 590 hectares of vineyards in Australia’s finest wine growing regions of Riverina in New South Wales, King Valley in Victoria and McLaren Vale in South Australia – making them the 18th largest vineyard holders in Australia. In addition, Nugan Estate sources premium quality grape from the renowned Coonawarra region of South Australia.
This Cabernet Sauvignon shows both varietal character and the warmth of this warm inland region. Pronounced ripe fruit and spice, plump red and black berries, menthol, eucalyptus, cedar and some vanillin from oak. The palate is weightly and muscular with bold tannins and lots of concentration.
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. The grapes are harvested, destemmed and chilled. Fermentation takes place in small static fermenters. After this, the wine is pressed and put into a combination of French and American oak barrels for a further 12 months maturation.
