Stage Door Wine Co Full House Cabernet 2014

Stage Door Wine Co. Eden Valley Full House Cabernet

Vineyard: Grown on a single estate vineyard (Avon Brae) in the High Eden region of the Barossa - 490m altitude. Cabernet wine grapes are ideal for the micro climate in Eden Valley. High altitude assists with  slow ripening, acidity and concentrated fruit development; essential for long term cellaring.

Season: A late season prevailed as expected. A record number of forty degree days followed by torrential rain was concerning. Fortunately, Eden Valley terrior allows good drainage with the sandy loam and layering of various rock types. In summary, a challenging season with good quality but very low yields.

Wine making: NA

Appearance: Medium to dark purple

Aroma/Bouquet: Fragrant dark and black fruits with aromas of ripe blackberry, blackcurrant and perfumed mulberry. Nuances of spice are obvious featuring clove, star anise and nutmeg.

Clove, nutmeg and cinnamon spice lie in the background, along with hints of liquorice, coffee espresso and dark chocolate.

Stage Door Wine Co has been the result of a long work in progress. Having been a passionate and relatively successful professional musician for 15 years during the 80’s and 90’s, there came a time that I needed to reassess my future.
