Cabernet Sauvignon

2009 Cabernet Sauvignon


Out of stock

The 2009 Eden Hall Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep, brilliant, youthful purple in colour with striking aromas of black fruits, hints of violets, black olives, grilled capsicum, washed earth, cedar and spice. The concentrated and multi-layered flavours centre on cassis, blackcurrants and dark chocolate. Finishing with long fine tannins and beautiful balance it will age and improve for at least a decade, but offers spectacular drinking pleasure right now.

The 2009 vintage was preceded by another drought winter, with 399mm rainfall in Eden Valley for the year, and one of the coldest. December didn’t record any days over 32oC, while January tended to warm to hot with a couple of heat spikes into the high 30s and low 40s. Late January brought a record six days over 40oC, causing significant vine stress, exacerbated by the lack of sub soil moisture, followed by another week of extreme hot weather. Subsequent weather was mild and dry and from March 1 moved into autumn mode, perfect ripening weather. A strong change in early March brought a general rain across the state, which helped the vines pull through from the heat.
