Springfield Whole Berry Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Regular price $39.95

In order to achieve a luscious, juicy wine, we try to have as little intervention in the cellar as possible. Simply de-stemmed, the whole, uncrushed bunches are transported using only a gravity flow system. Whole berry maceration is followed by fermentation with natural yeasts, racking and one year’s maturation in oak barrels.

The result is a velvety wine with softer tannins and classical varietal characteristics.

This traditional wine is unfiltered and unfined, which may deposit sediment and might require decanting.
