Personalised Snake + Herring Higher Ground Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 14% 750ml

Personalised Snake + Herring Higher Ground Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 14% 750ml

The 2 parcels were handpicked and destemmed to 1-tonne open fermenters. A mixture of wild and inoculated ferments were hand plunged 2-3/day and left on skins post-ferment to build mouthfeel and supple tannins. Maturation was for 19 months in French hogsheads and barriques with 53% new.

Expert Review:
James Halliday- 95 points, This is in best Snake + Herring style, a very different proposition to its The Distance Karridale sibling; it is medium-boned, and secure in its elegant clothing, with cassis and superfine tannins taking it in turns to push their claims to be heard, although no more than that.

The Snake + Herring brand is a wine safari searching for remarkable grapes from West Australian Vineyards. The Search has begun, and our grape balloon manned by Snake (our winemaker) and Herring (our navigator) represent this. The southwest of WA is a viticultural treasure map as there are vineyard jewels scattered throughout. We seek for blocks within vineyards that really shine; they may seem dull when diluted by the bordering lesser dirt. The search is to find and polish these often overlooked gems and present a treasure chest of different jewels: pristine, crystalline Rieslings; crisp, radiant, multi-faceted Chardonnays; alluring, perfumed Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon; dark, exotic, hedonistic Shiraz; brilliant, regal displays of Cabernets and blends.
