Muse Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2013

Drinking Guide

 

Drink 2016–2037

This is a single vineyard wine displaying the ripeness of a warm year without losing the complexity, perfume and classical structure of its cool climate origins. Its elegance lies in a palate weight which doesn’t overwhelm and allows for the gradual revelation of texture, fine tannins and natural bright acid. It has flavours of black currants, red berries, dried Provençal herbs, violets and perfumed oak. 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. Cabernet Sauvignon 68% Cabernet franc 31% Shiraz 1%.

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. All fruit was sourced from the Moorilla owned and operated St. Matthias vineyard, north-east facing on the West Bank of the Tamar River. As with all our wines, the fruit was handpicked. Picking was performed once herbaceous or green characters decreased and fruit flavours increased.
