HASELGROVE McLaren Vale First Cut Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The principle behind our first cut wines revolves around the winemaking term “first cut” in which during the pressing cycle the softer free run juice/wine is separated from the second cut or pressings. This principle flows through to the style of First Cut wines, producing wines with great drinkability well suited to be enjoyed with food or as a drink with friends.
In the glass: Inky dark red.
On the nose: Concentrated black cherry, plum and liquorice over chocolatey oak.
On the palate: Super-ripe, plush and juicy with sweet oak, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. It has a terrific mouth-watering texture and long, seamless persistence. Lovely immediate drinking.
