Nocturne SR Cabernet 2020

 

Yallingup is our stomping ground and where the world’s greatest Cabernet and Cabernet Blends are being grown! Its deliciously warm but never hot, with the amazing dual influence of the Indian Ocean and Geographe Bay. In this SR3 Cabernets’ we have used our own beloved Sheoak Cabernet and added some of our neighbour’s Merlot and Malbec from the Simpson property that we are lucky enough to share the amazing valley with.

In the winds of a global pandemic, sometimes shit still goes right. The 2020 vintage is in my opinion in Margaret River Cabernet a little mixed within my opinion some people rushing to pick vineyards somewhat early. In the Yallingup Hills, we enjoyed a lovely warm March, not too hot not too cold and importantly largely dry allowing the fruit to be picked at its zenith. We commenced picking Sheoak Cabernet on the 27th of March and from the moment the fruit hit the fermenter it looked destined to be a classic. Instantly perfumed and richly coloured the wine spent 14 days on skins with a peak fermentation temperature of around 28 degrees C. The wine was pressed to tank and settled briefly, before being transferred to a combination of new (25%) and two & three-year-old barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine was only racked once in this time and, after 14 months in oak, was emptied from barrel. At this juncture we decided on the final makeup which is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon 15 % Merlot and 13% Malbec. These wines were then settled together clarified and bottled.

Cabernet is King and long will it reign in our eyes. This is our favourite Nocturne Cabernets yet with epic drinkability yet huge complexity and verve. If Earnest Hemmingway was still alive he’d be pouring this in by the bucketful.
