Eyes

Deep purple/red colour.

Nose

Beach/iodine scents amongst blackberry fruit, savoury oak and some briar, tobacco and undergrowth aromas.

Mouth

Bright cassis fruit flavours, hints of mint and forest floor, which are all fruit derived, but they have been crafted into a wine of great complexity by ageing in the best available French oak which also allowed integration of all these flavours whilst adding to the structure and tannin, creating a long savoury aftertaste.

Winemaking Notes

This Richardson Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon wine was produced from the most exceptional batch of grapes identified by the Blue Pyrenees team as “better than ever”, the same philosophy established in the 1990’s to create exceptional Blue Pyrenees red wine as a tribute to the late Colin Richardson. This wine was vinified and then, unusually for Blue Pyrenees, matured in 100% new oak, before final blending and preparation for bottling. The nominated 2013 Cabernet grapes always displayed intense varietal characters as they reached optimum ripeness and balance on the vine, in the near perfect red grape growing season of 2012/2013. Vinification included warm fermentation, and extended skin contact for 2 weeks, before 24 months maturation in new French oak barriques, ensuring complexity, smoothness and integration of all the flavour components and fine tannin, before bottling in June 2015.
