Right Reverend V, Patientia, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mount BarkerRight Reverend V
100% cabernet sauvignon sourced from two mature vineyards in mount barker. picked at optimum ripeness, the wine was given 15 months of 100% French oak barriques, 25% new, 75% first, second and third use.
The 2013 Right Reverend V ‘Patientia’ (meaning patience) Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates how a cooler sub-climate can produce outstanding fruit. Deep and brooding purple in colour, this Cabernet exhibits all the regional characters of Mount Barker, crunchy cassis perfume and cedar notes follow onto the palate of rich ripe berries. Generous weight and texture support the palate whilst the balance of oak and tannin provided exceptional length from start to ﬁnish.
This Cabernet can be cellared for up to ten years - or if patience fails, drink with roasted or grilled red meats with all the trimmings, or mature cheeses.
If ‘In Vino Veritas’ (in wine there’s truth), then surely this truth begins in the vineyard.
