Attollo Wines El Rey Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is undoubtedly the king of the Margaret River grapes, so when this fruit presented it self - the El Rey or King of the Attollo Range was born. Attollo El Rey 2017 was made from a Biodynamically farmed parcel of “old vine” Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from the Wilyabrup Subregion in the Margaret River region. The fruit was hand tended throughout the growing season following solely organic practices with no herbicide. The wine was made utilising a “hands-off” approach, with a focus on limited additions, gravity flow operations and Biodynamique principles. The vinification aimed to create an elegant wine with structure and depth that will provide ageability for the medium to long-term, depending on your cellaring conditions.
The wine has a moderately deep red centre with a pink red hue. The nose is filled blackcurrant and chocolate aromas, with hints of fresh herbs and cedary French oak firmly implanted in the background. The palate has beautiful depth and presence, with a lovely precision and balance and fine velvety tannins to finish.
