2021 Mountadam Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

$28.00

Mountadam Vineyards Eden Valley range is an expression of the purity of cool climate varietals from Estate plantings. Eden Valley Cabernet is greatly underrated showing lovely florals of violets, dark brambly fruits and fine supple tannins.

Professional Reviews

Mountadam is doing very good things when it comes to shaping plush, contemporary-styled wines from their vineyards way up in the High Eden (at around 550m above sea level). The fruit purity on display is really something and there is a balance here, despite the higher alcohol level. Ripe blackberry and blackcurrant fruits with hints of briar, dried citrus blossom, roast capsicum, fine spice and cedar all come into play with fine, self-assured tannins and lacy acidity finishing long and bright.

Tasting Notes

Mountadam Vineyards Eden Valley range is an expression of the purity of cool climate varietals from Estate plantings. Eden Valley Cabernet is greatly underrated showing lovely florals of violets, dark brambly fruits and fine supple tannins.   

Harvested from block 24 on 30th of April and block 38 on the 1st May from the Estates eastern side at an average of 14.7 ºBe

The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and harvested using a selective destemming harvester and fermented in 5 tonne and 10 tonne open fermenters after cold soaking for 2 days prior to fermentation.  

The wine was then matured in 60% new tight grain French oak barriques and 40% 1-2-year-old tight grain French oak barriques.
