2016 Cabernet Sauvignon goes well with good quality Cheddar

Goes well with good quality Cheddar

The strong, salty flavour of Cheddar cheese is a perfect match for the bolder more tannic Holm Oak Cabernet Sauvignon.
Local producers of good quality cheddar cheese.

Winemaking notes

This Cabernet was picked as ripe as possible in order to achieve a balance between the ripe fruit characters and the more herbal nature of the variety. The fruit was then de-stemmed and crushed and cold soaked for 3 days. Traditional Bordeaux yeast was used for the fermentation. Once fermentation was complete the skins were gently pressed to ensure extraction of the fine tannins and the wine was then matured in French oak. Following a light egg white fining the wine was coarse filtered and then bottled.

Tasting notes

This Cabernet is full of black current and cassia characters with a beautiful velvety mouthfeel. There is an added hint of chocolate, leather and tobacco which makes a wonderfully complex wine. Whilst drinking well now, this wine will continue to develop for the next 6 – 10 years.
