Intro to Hancock and Hancock Cabernet Touriga –
Hancock & Hancock Cabernet Touriga from McLaren Vale in South Australia has notes of blackcurrant flavours of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes mixed with perfume of violets from savoury Touriga grapes to create unique, satisfying red.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Hancock & Hancock Cabernet Touriga from McLaren Vale is made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Touriga, 7% Shiraz and 4% Malbec grapes. McLaren Vale is a long way from Portugal which is home to the Touriga grape. However the climate agrees with it and blending with Cabernet results in a brooding combination of very ripe smooth blackcurrant with notes of violets and an intriguing rusticity on the finish. Delicious flavours and aromas.
Harvested fully ripe, individual varietal parcels were processed separately, crushed to a combination of open and closed fermenters, with regular pump-overs and plunging during fermentation. The wine is then pressed in to stainless steel tanks where the wine underwent its secondary malolactic fermentation. Then it is passed down to a mixture of barrique, hogshead and large format French oak. Blending was completed on the bench, working with individual components to create the final blend.
The producer –
The vineyard is situated in the McLaren Valein South Australia, which is the truly Hancock “Home” vineyard. The vines are old, some of them are more than eighty years old, and they are planted on South East facing slopes. Here they are protected from strong winds and facing the gentle moving sun. There are three distinct soil types at the top middle and bottom sections of the hillside, so they find different characteristics from each of the vineyard sections giving added complexity and interest to the wine they make.
Drink with –
This wine is great when served with grilled and roasted red meats, pizza, pasta, rich casseroles and spicy dishes.
