Due to its class defying quality and appearance, Black Opal is the Australian gem that shines amongst the vast field of other Australian wines. A remarkably friendly and fruit-forward wine, Black Opal creates an impression of intrigue and sophistication at every occasion.VITICULTUREA variety of premium vineyard sites throughout South Eastern Australia were chosen for this wine. Fruit was selected for its color and flavor intensity. VINIFICATIONParcels of fruit were crushed and de-stemmed separately. Fermentation and cap management techniques were employed to extract the intense color, flavor and soft tannin from the skin while maintaining approachability. The wine then underwent partial oak maturation for nine months with some parcels being left un-oaked to enhance the primary fruit characters.
The Black Opal Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 is a wine of great finesse and character, highlighting the very best of full-flavored Australian red wine. The rich aromas of blackcurrant, mint and spice on the nose carry through as flavors in a balanced palate offering fruit flavor, subtle oak and soft, well-integrated tannins. This is a classic Australian red wine made from the world's most noble red variety.
