Wally’s Hut Cabernet Sauvignon
Wally’s Hut Cabernet Sauvignon Winemaking:
The Wally’s Hut Cabernet Sauvignon is part of the export range of wines from Nugan Estate. The winemaking team source the grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon from the Nugan family’s premium vineyards in Australia. Chief Winemaker, Daren Owers, insists the harvest of the grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon is in small batches. This is to allow for optimum ripeness in the cool of the night to preserve the premium fruit flavours. Afterwards, the winemaking team will crush, yeast and gently pump over the grapes. They will do this to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. They will then transfer the juice to French Oak, where it will remain for 9 months. This allows the wine to mature prior to final blending and bottling.
