Wicks Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Adelaide Hills 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Blackburrant and ripe plum fruit aromas are immediately evident, with briar and cassis flavors adding further complexity. After 12 months maturation in new and seasoned French Barriques, elegant and supple tannins meld with the spicy soak.<br/><br/>

Wicks Estate Wines is a family owned and operated wine company producing premium wines from their vineyard located at Woodside in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, one of Australia’s premier cool climate wine growing regions. Tim and Simon Wicks proudly front the Wicks Estate Label and armed with a firm belief in long term success, aim to steer the company into a position where the Wicks Estate Brand is regarded as one of the Adelaide Hill’s finest. The Wicks Family has a long history of involvement in agriculture with the Woodside Vineyard following on from their Orchard and Nursery operations at Highbury. In late 1999, the 54 hectare property at Woodside was chosen and purchased for its scenic location and suitability for premium wine grape production. The vineyard, planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was designed around the gentle undulating slopes studded with a number of ancient red gums and the Inverbrackie Creek that winds its course through the length of the property. The winery is a ‘state of the art facility' situated amongst the estate vineyard utilising Worlds best practice grape growing and wine making procedures. This world class processing facility, completed in early 2004, was designed and constructed utilising a team of private and independent engineers, machinery manufacturers, winemakers and builders under the guidance of the Wicks family as project managers.

Whilst drinking superbly now this wine will reward patient cellaring over the medium to long term.
