Bottle of Maritime Cabernet Shiraz
Single/Case

2012 Maritime Cabernet Shiraz

The name ‘Maritime’ reflects the coastal position of the best Cabernet sauvignon blocks in the world, whereby a maritime climate with gentle sea breezes over warm, dry summers enables the cabernet fruit to ripen with great flavours.

This superb blend of estate grown 80% Cabernet sauvignon and 20% Shiraz grapes has aromas of redcurrant, spicy plum, mocha and cedar. Our Cabernet fruit gives excellent length and structure while the Shiraz, taken from the same batch as the McLaren Vale Scarce Earth Shiraz, offers silken tannins and a chocolate-rich mouth feel.

Open vat fermenting, a gentle basket-press and 30 months barrel ageing in seasoned French and American oak, provides balance and complexity. No filtration or fining used.

14.7% alc/vol. 200 cases made. Cellar 10+ years.
