About

This is one of the slinkiest and most seductive styles of Cabernet in the country at the moment. It's Pyrenees Cabernet in the hands of Owen Latta and it is a magic drink. It's a modern take on a classic variety. Owen employs some whole bunches (25%) in the long, slow ferment and lets the wine hang out on skins for 5 weeks prior to pressing. Here are his thoughts on Cabernet from this region as scribed by the Wine Front's Mike Bennie: "I think cabernet is one of the best varieties in the Pyrenees... I remember (Pyrenees Cabernet showing) dark fruit, full flavour, good acid to cut through and a glide on the palate. I didn’t want to make something over-extracted or over-oaked, something fresh." This is a great approach to making Cabernet, looking for drinking ease as a young wine, not just structure and longevity. This is supple and deeply fruited and just a delightful drink all round.

What it Tastes Like

"Smells beautiful. Lavender, briar, red plums, cola, pepper. It’s really lovely. Has that softness yet firm edges that great cabernet can get. Slides through the palate, lean, pure, unadorned, reliant of fine squeaky tannins and fresh, brisk acidity. Just medium weight, great energy, feels like finesse. Such a good drink. Yup." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
