Singlefile are continuing to draw high praise with their wines now recognised among the very finest made anywhere in Western Australia. Boasting an impressive portfolio of wines, it's not surprising to see Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Riesling leading the charge for this outstanding winery.
This wine is 100% cabernet sauvignon, the fruit picked and sorted in early April 2015. It was cold soaked in a small fermenter for twelve days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration. Post-fermentation the wine was left on skins for 8 days. Forty percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one year old (30%) and two year old (30%) Bordeaux barriques for sixteen months.
THE WINE: This wine displays complex aromas of black currant, plum and cassis, with savoury hints and gentle oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth filling with a juicy dark fruit flavours balanced with acidity and gentle fine grained tannins which lead to a long finish. It is well suited to red meat dishes such as a roast leg of lamb with garlic and herbs. It will continue to develop in the bottle for up to 15 years.
