2020 Halliday 4.5 star winery

Toolunka Cabernet Sauvignon

Toolunka Cabernet Sauvignon

Named after an ancient flood plain of the majestic River Murray in South Australia.  Known for the greatest days of sunshine, the Riverland region has a pristine climate for premium grape growing on our limestone soils.

Juicy blackberry fruits are balanced by hints of spicy French oak and soft, flavoursome finish.

FRUIT  This Cabernet Sauvignon was selected at vintage from our estate vineyards in South Australia. These mature vines are an average of 40 years on limestone which provides fruit intensity and varietal expression. The 2019 Riverland vintage endured hot, dry conditions of over 35 for 48 days resulting in lower than average yields with minimal disease risk, with concentrated flavours and richness.

WINEMAKING  The richness of the fruit in its natural state meant that minimal intervention was required in the winery. Harvest at optimum timing capturing full fruit potential.  Fermented on skins for 10 days and carefully monitored to allow a fermenting regime of 24 to 28 degrees.  Seasoned, house select French oak is used in the maturation of this smooth well-balanced Cabernet.

COLOUR   Deep dark magenta with purple almost black hues.

AROMA  Cassis, ripe mixed blue and black berries. Dark chocolate and nuances of fragrant dry herbs.
