- Maritime Cabernet Shiraz
2014 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 flavour.
This superb blend of estate grown 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% 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 our much-awarded ROW 23 Shiraz, offers silken tannins and a chocolate-rich mouth feel.
Open vat fermenting, a gentle basket-press and 24 months barrel ageing in seasoned French oak, provides balance and complexity. No filtration or fining used.
14.0% alc/vol. 100 cases made. Cellar 15+ years.
