2016 Prophecy Cabernet Sauvignon
A beautifully structured wine. Fantastic blackberry, cigar box and dark chocolate combine to explode with intense dark berry flavours, firm tannins and cedary oak.
Tasting notes The nose shows a rich blend of blackberry aromas supported by hints of tobacco and chocolate.
Intense dark berry flavours combine with firm tannins and cedary oak to provide length and persistence.
This beautifully structured wine will reward careful long term cellaring.
Viticultural notes Witches Falls produces Prophecy wines from selected parcels of fruit that we consider to be exceptional.
As a result these wines my not be seen every vintage. In 2016 the elements combined to deliver a truly
exceptional vintage in the Granite Belt. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vines in particular
thrived in the near perfect ripening and growing conditions to produce intensely flavoured fruit.
Winemaking notes We have crafted our 2016 Prophecy Cabernet Sauvignon from a select block of fruit near Ballandean in the Granite Belt. It has been matured in new and used Oak Barriques to produce a wonderful wine that we believe eloquently demonstrates the incredible potential of the Granite Belt, with a reputation which will continue to grow.
