2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Special museum release Cabernet Sauvignon

$149.00

    Description

    In 2013 we handpicked just 300kg and created 250 bottles....

    Meaning 'red velvet' in Italian, this 2013 vintage Velluto Rosso aged in 'French Oak' is a rare find amongst Trofeo's collection of Terracotta wines hidden away in our special museum reserve. One of the more challenging varieties to grow on the Mornington Peninsula, our Cabernet Sauvignon block consists of only three acres of vines at the back of the estate. The vines are grown without pesticides or herbicides, lovingly hand pruned and tended. This wine is simply one of our finest. It has been cellaring for eight years and will offer greater reward with your patience, with an intense complexity on the palate and silky red velvet mouthfeel. To enjoy our Velluto Rosso, decanter and allow to breathe for one hour before drinking. This luxurious drop really does prove the Mornington Peninsula can produce a spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon, one we'd love our members to tuck away in their own cellar for a special occasion. Salute!
