Whisky Barrelled Cabernet Sauvignon 2017


The inaugural vintage of our Cabernet Sauvignon aged in Pike Creek Whisky barrels - adding a richness and complexity to this already bold wine. On the nose, aromas of rich caramel and smoky oak support notes of ripe fruit such as cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant. The palate has bold but elegant flavours of ripe fruit to match the nose together with silky smooth tannins, balanced acidity and subtle oak and whisky notes all very integrated.

This wine has sold out in-store with the limited remaining stock aging in our wine library. It is occasionally available for tasting and purchase. Subscribe to our Newsletter to learn more.

  • Winemaking Notes

    The 2017 vintage was cooler than average, a warm trend just before harvest allowed for the grapes to fully ripen. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested in late November. The drying period was 100 days, and after pressing the wine was aged for the first 12 months in French and American oak barrels. This bold Cabernet Sauvignon was then transferred into Pike Creek Whisky barrels to finish aging for 5 months. This wine has a very powerful palate - enjoy now after allowing to decant, or continue to cellar through to the year 2027.

  • Food Paring

    Serve this wine with blue and firm cheeses, charcuterie, grilled red meats with mushroom or peppercorn sauce, hearty stews, classic lasagna and risotto dishes.
