2014 Brecon Cabernet/Petite Sirah

2014 Brecon Cabernet Petite Sirah

Scandinavians just love this style of wine. Something, we suspect, to cuddle up to when those icy baltic winds are howling. 73% Brecon Old Vine Cabernet, AKA our Reserve Cabernet (say no more!). The balance is 100% our award winning Petite Sirah. Monster hit of upfront fruit, pretty damn intense mid palate and an intriguing, multi-layered chalky finish.

Tasting notes

Monster hit of upfront forest fruits, pretty damn intense mid palate and an intriguing, multi-layered soft chalky finish. Scandinavians just love this style of wine. Something, we suspect, to cuddle up to when those icy baltic winds are howling.

Production notes

Our winemaker first made a Cabernet/Petite Sirah for the Swedish market. It was a hugely popular style. Here it has been elevated several notches by using super premium fruit. Brecon uses techniques, such as cold soaking, on the petite Syrah specifically designed to emphasise primary berry characters and mid palate fruit weight. Extended maceration on the old vine cabernet helps with structure and length. Varietals are kept separate until a month prior to bottling but are fully integrated at release some four months later.

73% Brecon Estate Old Vine Cabernet, AKA our Reserve Cabernet (do we need to say more! You are looking at the gnarly vines when you are in our tasting room). The balance is 100% our award winning Petite Sirah from Mainini Vineyard. A ridge top vineyard just over the county line in Monterey. It actually backs onto Camp Roberts military base and has those same, rather special calcareous shales you know and love from our westside Paso Robles offerings. It gets the petite truly ripe.
