Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Grape info: Cabernet’s deep colour, high acidity and high tannin can make for extremely age-worthy wines capable of lasting decades. Its unusually aromatic profile and affinity with oak give it a world-renowned complexity that has formed the basis for some of the world’s finest and most famous wines.
About: Established 75 years ago, but with a story spanning almost 90 years, Calabria has established itself as one of the top twenty wine producers in Australia. Celebrating 25 years, the Three Bridges range was born from Bill Calabria’s dedication to creating a strong reputation for premium Riverina wines.
Harvested from low-yielding, 20-50 year-old vines, the wines undergo a twelve month maturation in a mix of American and French oak before bottling.
Tasting note: Blueberry and blackcurrant with fragrant notes of mulberry and violets alongside cinnamon, nutmeg and spice. Full bodied with ripe notes of blackberry and boysenberry balanced by structured, chewy tannins and a lengthy, elegant finish.
Character: Blackcurrant, violet, spice
