Baron Herzog Jeunesse Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

MEVUSHAL "Among the enchanting secrets that often escape aficionados of Cabernet Sauvignon are the youthful nuances of character that are displayed during the wine's infancy. These characteristics include a beautiful purple color, a soft texture, a perceived sweetness on one's palate, with fresh berry, cherry and floral aromas. In an effort to produce the Jeunesse, a wine that exhibits this exceptional character, ripe grapes were cold fermented in exclusively stainless steel tanks. Hence, you will enjoy a wine that is pointedly 'jeunesse' - which is French for youthful, flavorful and fun. You can enjoy it slightly chilled or at room temperature." -Winery

Herzog is a family owned New Zealand winery and restaurant, supported by a unique team of individuals who all share the same values: a passion for wine and food, commitment to excellence and quality, and a love for the great New Zealand environment. As the name suggests, Hans Herzog's roots lie in Switzerland where the family has grown wine since 1630. There Hans and Therese owned the successful 'Taggenberg' vineyard and restaurant in the Zurich wine country. Looking for a new challenge, in the mid 1990's they planted an 11 hectare vineyard bordering the Wairau River here in Marlborough and later moved the winery and Michelin-starred restaurant. Here Hans has adopted an experimentalist stance, cultivating an eclectic array of varieties, including Arneis, Barbera, Tempranillo and Zweigelt - as well as the more traditional Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The organically-managed vineyard benefits from a warm, dry microclimate and Hans ferments at cool temperatures using wild yeasts, the white wines barrel-fermented in 500 litre oak puncheons, the reds aged for 12-30 months in French oak barriques, creating wines rich in varietal character.

Jeunesse Cabernet Sauvignon displays a vibrant ruby color, soft texture and perceived sweetness on the palate, with aromas of fresh berry, cherry and floral notes. In an effort to produce a wine that exhibits this kind of character, we cold fermented ripe grapes in exclusively stainless steel tanks. - Winery
