2019 Seneca Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a luxurious medium-to-full bodied wine bursting with aromas of white pepper and red capsicum. The palate is soft and luscious, with notes of fresh blackberries, red currants and a velvet-lined cigar box. 15 months spent in a blend of new and old French oak gives balance, integrated tannins, and a long lingering finish. A great match with charcuterie meats, garlic roast chicken and soft cheese.
The 25-year-old vines are nestled in the stunning Nagambie Lakes region of the Goulburn Valley. Long dry summers and cool nights allow the fruit to develop in richness and complexity; the perfect place to grow classic cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon.
