Wine List

Morambro Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Tasting Notes

Deep purple in colour. A rich elegant nose of cassis with overtones of vanilla and coffee. Lush, ripe palate dominated by black fruits, cherry and chocolate. Full bodied with savory, integrated fruit tannins and persistent finish.

Winemaking Report

Winemaking at Morambro Creek is very traditional and labour intensive. Oak maturation takes place using 35-40% new barrels both French and American. In good cellars, Morambro Creek Cabernet Sauvignon can age for anywhere from 7 to 10 years. This blend was put together using select barrels from our family estate that best demonstrate the intensity of our fruit balanced by integrated oak.

Vintage Conditions

It started out full bore with the usual warm February weather. All our grape varieties started to ripen at the same time making it one of our most compact vintages to date. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrate the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.
