Lake Cooper Heathcote Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
- Cabernet Sauvignon
Dark plum with a magenta tint. The nose is clean and fresh with pure hints of blueberries and red berry fruits. This full-bodied red wine was made from our 20-year-old estate vines. The fruit was handpicked prior to destemming and fermentation in small stainless steel fermenters. Post-fermentation the wine was transferred to a mix of new and older French oak for twelve months of barrel maturation before blending and bottling. Beautiful rich palate with silky tannins, restrained oak nuances and a long finish. Cellaring potential of ten years. - Winemaker's Notes
Lake Cooper Estate is a small family-owned wine producer that marries time-proven grape-growing and winemaking techniques with the expectations of the modern wine buyer. The estate’s vineyard of around 80 acres is managed with the intent to deliver classic Heathcote regional style and quality, but also to reflect its unique combination of easterly exposure and its deep, ancient and rocky soils.
All decisions in the growing and making of the wine are designed to emphasise the site’s special qualities and to reflect the ambitions of the owner, Liping Wang, to fashion wines of complexity, expression and elegance that age with both charm and grace.
With a new winery on the drawing-board and new plantings to implement over the coming years, Lake Cooper Estate is set to reinforce its presence in the wine industries of Heathcote and Australia. - Information from Lake Cooper Website
