Howard Park Western Australia Margaret River Leston Cabernet Sauvignon 2011/12 750ml
Harvest of the 2011 Leston Cabernet Sauvignon occurred in late March 2011. Vinification occurred in closed stainless steel fermenters with diligent cap management to extract fine fruit tannin and strong varietal flavour. Selected parcels remained on skins post the fermentation to further enhance the tannin profile while others were pressed at dryness to capture fruit vibrancy.After pressing, each batch is matured separately in order to build a wine history over time. Barrel maturation for 18 months in 40 % new and 60% older, French oak barriques ensures the thorough integration of oak and grape tannins. The wine was blended from a selection of the best batches from the Leston vineyard. After egg white fining and light filtration, the wine was bottled in January 2013.
