FARM to TABLE 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria, Australia

PHILOSOPHY
The Fowles family is very committed to ethical and sustainable viticultural practices, as well as hunting and living off the 800 acre expanse they occupy in this remote region, Matt Fowles launched the Farm to Table range of wines to help promote this deep connection to the land.

VINEYARD
All of the fruit is sourced from Fowles estate vineyards in the super cool-climate Strathbogie Ranges of Central Victoria at an elevation of over 1600 feet.  The fruit was picked from our Billi’s vineyard in the last week of April, 2017.

Vintage Notes: 2017 was a cold and challenging season. As a robust variety our Cabernet enjoyed the cool conditions. The long hang time ensured a good slow development of flavor with slow building sugar levels. This meant we could keep the alcohol below 14% and still have lovely ripe flavors.

CELLAR
The wine was matured using new French (70%) and American (30%) oak. We blended in a small portion of Merlot (6%) from the same vineyard which contributes ripe, juicy plum flavors and fills out the mid palate.

PH 3.53                T/A 6.8 g/L               Alc 13.4%
