The Pig in the House Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates it fullness through a deep Ruby colour with bright purple hues. Aromatically the wine exhibits a lovely balance between red and blackcurrants, with an underlying crushed herb character.
The palate displays a fruit forward style of Cabernet, without being a mouthful. A touch of dry tannins provides the wine with medium bodied savouriness, contributed to by older oak tannins.
The Pig in the House Cabernet Sauvignon, was fermented in open fermenters with the cap hand plunged daily for six days. The wine was matured in a combination of three-year-old French and four year old American oak barrels. The wine was racked six monthly prior to finishing its 12 month maturation in stainless steel tank.
The wines are made to reflect the vineyard, soil and climate with minimal winemaking influence. We want the wines to taste and reflect our place; our region and vineyard. Fruit purity is key, with oak maturation kept to a point where it supports the fruit, without dominating. The wines are dry and exhibit energetic and vibrant fruit sweetness.
