Springfield Estate Whole Berry Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Springfield Estate Whole Berry Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Simply de-stemmed, the whole, uncrushed bunches are transported using only a gravity flow system. Whole berry maceration is followed by fermentation with natural yeasts, racking and one year’s maturation in oak barrels. The result is a velvety wine with softer tannins and classical varietal characteristics.
