Dornier Equanimity Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Dornier Equanimity Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

A good example of this noble variety with opulent fruit, great structure and the ability to age well. The nose presents a full bouquet ranging from cassis, blackberries and pencil shavings supported by hints of oak and cigar box aromas. The palate has density and concentration with firm tannins with well-balanced acidity and a long finish.

Best with beef, lamb and game dishes

in the cellar : This wine was fermented in open stainless steel tanks with regular pump overs performed daily to extract all possible flavours from the berries. After alcoholic fermentation the wines underwent malolactic fermentation followed by 15 months ageing in 30% new and the remainder second fill French oak barrels.
