Devil’s Elbow Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

$60.00

The 2010 vintage was an incredible year for Cabernet Sauvignon. This small batch release is a pure expression of what Adelaide Hills Cabernet can be. The wine expresses black currant, clove, mint and spiced cherry notes that are accompanied by firm velvety tannins. After four years in bottle this wine is only just starting to express its potential.

Our 2010 Reserve Devil’s Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon is rich purple and violet in colour, with aromas of black currant, clove, mint and spiced dark cherry. It has toasty oak characters, perfectly balanced tannin and a long clean finish. Excellent to drink now and will benefit with 15+ years cellaring.

2010 was a vintage with extremely low yields. The summer was relatively cool and dry with harvesting occurring at the start of April. This cool dry summer resulted in an amazing quality of fruit and in turn resulted in intense flavour and acid balance.
Devil’s Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced entirely from Longview’s vineyard at Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked to minimise fruit damage, then fermented on skins for 7 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was ages in old and new French Oak. A select parcel of 4 Barriques was set aside for 20 months.
