Church Road 1 Single Vineyard Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Full of opulent dark berry fruits, with a brooding, warm earthiness and graphite bring a dark seriousness. This is supported by the lifted aromatics of perfectly ripe cabernet; notes of florals and fragrant wood suggestive of Rosewood, cedar, lavender and violet and thyme. Layered and complex with a supple mid palate and powerful, fine grained tannin driving great length. With careful cellaring, we expect this wine will age gracefully for 15 years of more.
"Terroir is a French word with no direct English translation. It can be described as the taste of the place. The same grape variety grown in different sites, even in the same region, will demonstrate uniquely different characteristics 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 recognizable personality, presence and above all quality. Church Road 1 is a range of single vineyard wines that showcase the terroir of our best vineyards."
