Kingston Estate Cabernet Sauvignon shows diversity across South Australia’s many wine regions ensures that each vintage, wines of very different styles can be produced from the same variety.
The Kingston Estate range of single varietal wines are crafted to display distinctive varietal character through careful region selection. The best characteristics of one or more regions, often a combination of warm and cool climate, are matched and blended to provide the perfect synergy of regional definition and varietal integrity.
This Cabernet Sauvignon benefits from the unique characteristics of two superb South Australian wine regions, the Coonawarra contributes to the richness of traditional dark fruit flavours while the Clare Valley enhances with intensity of colour, firmness of structure and complexity of finish.
Individual vineyard components were fermented separately in small static fermenters.Ferment temperatures started at –20°C then were allowed to peak at 28-29°C. Wine was pressed off skins when dry and the heavy pressings were omitted from the blend. Once fermented, the parcels were matured in American and French Oak to gain flavour complexity and integration.
