Outpost Coonawarra Cabernet 2012

Picked on different days to allow for optimum ripening, parcels of fruit for the Mr. Riggs 2012 “Outpost” Coonawarra Cabernet were separately fermented in 5 and 8 tonne open fermenters. On – skin fermentation was completed before pressings were sent to barrel for 13 – 17 months to complete fermentation in a 30% new French and American oak combination. Following on from its TROPHY winning predecessor in 2010, this wine is intensely bright, floral and fragrant on the nose with lovely length on the palette. A perfectly balanced Cabernet, very worthy of its reputation.
