Margan 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
We have a tiny 2.4-hectare block of old vine Cabernet Sauvignon planted on the original Saxonvale vineyard, Fordwich. These vines have been producing some of the best Hunter Valley Cabernet for over 40 years. Old vines and low yields allow for perfectly ripe fruit which can be a challenge in the Hunter as Cabernet ripens late and sometimes vintage weather will rain on our parade. The wine is matured in new American hogsheads for 12 months to add tannins, structure and spice. The wine has concentrated cassis, black fruit and classic cigar box notes. The concentrated fruit sweetness is perfectly balanced with hallmark acidity and tannins which ensure long term ageing. This is a fantastic example of how great Hunter Cabernet can be.
