PJ’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Langhorne Creek, South Australia
Viticulture 2016 was a good growing season which allowed the grapes to ripen early.
The vines had minimal irrigation and the crop levels were low to ensure the vines produced a balanced crop of grapes.
This wine was made as a small batch (10 tonne) with a warm ferment over 8 days,
before being pressed off skins into a combination of 100% French Oak barrels.
Remaining in oak for 24 months maturation, gaining the layered complexity now evident in the finished wine.
The Angas Plains Wines PJs 2016 Cabernet is an elegant expression of the Cabernet varietal.
A lovely deep dark wine exhibiting a delightful bouquet of cassis and herbal characteristics.
The tannin has a lovely Langhorne Creek regional softness on the palate.
It can be drunk now or cellar-ed for 15 years.
