Trove Estate The Laurels Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Margaret River Cabernet is one of the great wine styles offered in this country and this is a fine example. The team’s usual procedure is for the fruit to be destemmed and then crushed into static fermenters for cold soaking for six to eight days. Fermentation proceeds with twice daily pumpovers, before pressing to barrel for 18 months.
Dark purple. The nose offers appealing notes of black cherries, dried herbs and black olives. This is fragrant and finely constructed. Good focus here, the wine has line and length. Black fruits dominate the palate at this early stage which also displays very fine tannins and excellent length. This has six to eight years of improvement ahead of it and should plateau for many years after that. A fine Margaret River Cabernet.
