Muse Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2012

Drinking Guide

 

Drink 2015–2036

2012 provided the ideal vintage. In these rare years, a balance between sugar, acid, flavour and phenolics in the vineyard evolves slowly. This allows Moorilla to produce a wine of ripeness and perfume, classical structure and length. Black currant and red berries aromas and flavours abound; dried Provençal herbs, perfumed oak and violets add complexity. Medium bodied and smooth, the skin and oak tannins are fine, plentiful and balanced by the natural acidity. Together they will provide longevity. This is a wine that will benefit from decanting over the course of its long life.

Vintage Description
Technical Details

Despite many differing opinions, I believe Tasmania has the capacity to make some excellent Bordeaux styled blends. This relies on a combination of good site selection, viticultural practices and attention in the winery. This wine is a fine example of such a cool climate wine. Savoury and spicy notes are found over fruit. Rich and complex it will benefit from decanting over the course of its long life. As with all our wines, the fruit was handpicked. Picking was performed once herbaceous or green characters decreased and fruit flavours increased.
