  • Longview Devils Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Rich purple and violet in colour, with aromas of black current, clove, mint and spiced dark cherry. It has toasty oak characters, perfectly balanced tannin and a long clean finish. Excellent to drink now and will benefit with 12+ years cellaring.


Winemaking Notes

After skipping the 2011 vintage due to poor quality of fruit, the 2012 was a vintage with extremely low yields but very high quality. The summer was relatively cool and dry with harvesting occurring at the start of April. This cool summer resulted in an amazing quality of fruit and in turn resulted in intense flour and acid balance.


Devil’s Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced entirely from Longview’s vineyard at Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked to minimise fruit damage, then fermented on skins for 7 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in old and new French Oak Barriques for 20 months.
