About this wine

Introducing the remarkable Nangkita Premium Cabernet Sauvignon 2021, a testament to Southern Fleurieu’s terroir and the mastery of Nangkita Estate Vineyards. Crafted from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from the illustrious Dam Block No. 10 within the Nangkita Single Vineyard, this wine is a harmonious blend of elegance and power.

The journey of this wine begins in the vineyard, where each acre yields a limited 3.0 tonnes, ensuring optimal concentration. Harvested on April 20th, 2021, the grapes underwent traditional winemaking, involving daily over-pumping in steel tanks to extract the wine’s essence. Controlled temperatures of 23°C – 25°C during alcoholic fermentation preserved the grapes’ integrity, and a complete malolactic fermentation ensued.

In the glass, the Nangkita Premium Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a vibrancy that beckons connoisseurs. Exotic aromas of ripe blackberries, popping blueberries, and scented toasted oak entice the senses. The palate offers a rich attack of viscosity, unctuous ripe flavours of black cherries, Boysenberries, and hints of liquorice. The finish, notably long and layered, sees smooth tannins meld seamlessly, lifted by zippy acidity for a touch of freshness.

Wine critics have lauded this masterpiece, with 96 points from Wine Orbit (2022) praising its fruit purity, power, and textured mouthfeel. Wine Enthusiast has awarded 92 points (3/16/2023) to this wine, acknowledging its unmissable allure.

This is one that people will talk about! It’s vibrant, exotic and well proportioned with ample baking spice, exquisitely ripe blackberries and popping -ripe blueberries. The attack is rich in viscosity and unctuously ripe flavours of black cherries and boysenberries along with scented, toasty oak, and liquorice. The finish is notably long and layered, and the smooth tannins meld in easily. Some zippy acidity lift gives this excellent freshness.

A gorgeous rendition of the variety, showing cassis, violet and cedary oak characters with a subtle tobacco nuance. The concentrated palate displays excellent fruit purity and power, superbly complemented by richly textured mouthfeel backed by sturdy tannins, leading to a lengthy structured finish. At its best: now to 2038.
