Ruddenklau ‘The Lone Kiwi’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
REGION: 100% Clare Valley
COLOUR: Deep crimson with red hues.
BOUQUET: The bouquet has aromatics of liquorice, mint and cedary oak.
PALATE: The palate is medium to full bodied with typical varietal Clare Cabernet flavours – some mint chocolate, spice and blackcurrants with a lovely soft tannin finish.
GENERAL: 2014 was generally a warm and dry vintage with a heatwave in early February followed by a nice
soaking rain. It was ideal ripening conditions for Cabernet to maximise flavour development and palate generosity. And with the elevation of the Ruddenklau vineyard we had cooler night time temperatures which helps to retain fruit freshness and slows down the ripening process to give elegant wines that have great cellaring potential.
SERVE WITH: Cabernet works well with a variety of meats, the oak, fruit and tannins marry together to give a wine that will accompany any hearty meal!
