Domaine A Cabernet Sauvignon

Domaine A Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of absolute dedication, built from the ground up according to a rigorous viticultural regime and uncompromising approach to winemaking. Domaine A Cabernet hails from the finest parcels of fruit each season. These are the smallest grapes with the most intensity and thickest skins from the higher slopes. It is an assemblage of classic Bordeaux varieties. The grapes are harvested entirely by hand from old estate vines. Typically, veraison will happen in February and picking in mid April. Domaine A Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted in small batches employing traditional techniques including open vat fermentation, regular racking and hand plunging with extended time on lees. It is matured in 100% new French oak barriques for 24-36 months. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered and rested in the cellar for two further years until ready for release. Domaine A Cabernet Sauvignon has a proven record of critical acclaim in company with the great wines of the world. It is recognised in the elite echelon of Australian wine and enjoys a strong following among collectors.

Domaine A Pinot Noir

Tasmania is regarded as Australia’s premier cool climate Pinot Noir growing region. Domaine A Pinot Noir is a substantial style with fine tannic structure and great longevity. The small 2ha plot of low yielding Pinot Noir vines is situated on the highest part of the vineyard slope at Domaine A. Low yields of 4.5 tonnes per ha and small, concentrated berries mean it takes two vines to make a single bottle of fine Domaine A Pinot Noir.
Winemaking includes small batch open fermentation, gentle hand plunging and maturation in seasoned French oak barriques for approximately 18 months to ensure true varietal expression. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
