Johnny Q Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Gold Medal - Concours Mondial Bruxelles Wine Comp. 2014

Fresh, complex cassis and mint fruit flavours with some well integrated vanillin oak. Full bodied with dense ripe cassis fruit flavours balanced with vanilla oak but yet long and smooth. Selected premium vineyards experienced ideal growing conditions producing wines of high sugar and flavours. Cool nights providing ideal harvesting conditions. The grapes were picked at between 13.5 to 14.0 Baume to produce the fruit flavours that are required to make this great wine. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of vessels to produce as much colour and flavour as possible. Portion of the wine underwent oak during fermentation and once dry, the remaining went to oak until the right balance was achieved. Careful tasting and blending, by our winemaker, help produce this wine of style and great value for money. Try with chargrilled sirloin or a hearty minestrone.

This wine has the flavour, structure and balance to be enjoyed now or offers added satisfaction from further cellaring.

Approachable, easy going and versatile, Johnny Q will suit any occasion! “You just can’t take life too seriously” … is Winemaker John Quarisa’s motto. John draws on his extensive experience to deliver Johnny Q, a range which encapsulates his love for life. You will find this wine is a perfect accompaniment with fun times and lots of laughter. Enjoy with good friends and family.
