Max & Me 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon winemaking comments

Max & Me Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 from our estate vineyard. A Cabernet bursting with violets and blackcurrants from our estate vineyard in the Eden Valley of the Barossa’s high country. Vegan friendly. A single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon by Philip Lehmann.

The Cabernet Sauvignon in the Max & Me Estate Cabernet 2018 is from our Boongarrie Estate ‘Bottom Block’, an east-facing and ironstone-underlain block planted in 1998. Pick date: 06/04/18. The Cabernet variety is often overlooked and underrated in the Eden Valley. In order to build this wine for outstanding ageability, fine tannins, and long flavours, long-maceration techniques were used in its winemaking. 65% of the cuvee spent 40 days on skins in a closed fermenter, while another portion spent 11 days on skins. Prior to bottling, the wine was aged 18 months in fine-grain French oak hogsheads (new 25%). Cabernet thrives on our property when it is not water-stressed, which was the case in 2018.

Max & Me 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon tasting notes

Deep rich purple/red with a dark core
Aroma: enticing nose of rich and fresh Cabernet blackcurrant, Eden Valley violets, fine cedar and dark liquorice
Flavour: Dark brambly cabernet fruit with lovely velvety fine tannin structure.
A pre-consumption decant/splash is recommended to further open the flavours and aromas.
