The ?Ohiti Estate? vineyards lie in an inland heat trap on the bed of the old Ngaruroro River. Trained on classical VSP trellis system, on gravel soils, our Cabernet Sauvignon obtains excellent levels of ripeness, with good colour intensity, clean fruit, and ripe tannin development. All the fruit was harvested in early-April compared with normal years when the harvest is in the latter half of the month.
The grapes were harvested on the 7 th April (thus reflecting the summer heat & ideal ripening conditions) and fermented using traditional Bordeaux pump-over methods for colour and flavour development and cap management. Time on skins was three weeks and malolactic occurred after pressing, prior to going to oak barrels for about 10 months.
The Ohiti Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an intensely dark vibrant wine which has a rich aroma, showcasing blackberry, boysenberry, spice, dried herbs, oak and vanilla, with a hint of tobacco in the background. The palate if full and flavoursome.
