Church Road 1 Single Vineyard Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
This Cabernet Sauvignon is full of opulent dark berry fruit, with a brooding, warm earthiness and graphite that brings a dark seriousness. This is supported by the lifted aromatics of perfectly ripe Cabernet. Floral notes and fragrant wood suggestive of rosewood, cedar, lavender and violet. Layered and complex with a supple mid-palate and powerful, fine grained tannins driving great length. With careful cellaring, we expect this wine will age gracefully for 15 years or more.
“Terroir is a French word with no direct English translation. It can be described as the flavour of the place. The same grape variety grown in different sites, even in the same region, will demonstrate a unique character related to those individual sites. Differences in soil, slope, altitude, and shelter can subtly or dramatically alter the resulting wine, even over distances of a few metres. The very best sites growing well suited varieties, will produce wines that stand out amongst their peers. Wines of recognisable personality, presence, and above all, quality. Church Road 1 is a range of single vineyard wines that showcase the terroir of our best vineyards.”
