2013 Blind Corner Bernard
Notes from the winemaker, Ben Gould... It is made from a single block of organically grown Cabernet Sauvignon on the Blind Corner vineyard. The grapes are handpicked and air-dried prior to fermentation. Due to this air-drying, the grapes lose a good quantity of water as they dry out, and also concentrate the sugars and flavours of the fruit. They are then foot-crushed, then hand-plunged during fermentation and basket pressed to French oak It then stays in oak for twelve months before being bottled without any fining. The resultant wine is powerful and concentrated showing all the typical characters of Cabernet from Margaret River, but with more intensity The palate is super -concentrated, rich and warm, with smooth tannins carrying the back palate onto a long finish and buggered if I know how long it will cellar for. 100 years?
