Movia Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Movia Cabernet Sauvignon is made in the traditional Movia style, which involves late harvesting and fermentation using wild yeasts.
Deep ruby colour. Fresh and rich nose of blackcurrant, black cherry and blueberry with notes of leather, undergrowth, tobacco and mocha. The aromas follow through to the palate beautifully and harmoniously. Instead of a big, bold and tannic Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is elegant and brilliant. Full-bodied and dry with sweet and chewy tannins, a bright acidity and a smooth fruity blackcurrant aftertaste.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The harvesting of the grapes is done manually from their vineyard, which practices organic cultivation. The vines are on average 30-years-old with single guyot vine training, growing in marl and limestone soils. Primary fermentation large steel fermentation tanks with indigenous yeasts. Maceration for 3–4 weeks until the grape skins sink to the bottom of the tank and clarifies the wine naturally. Secondary fermentation in barrique barrel on lees without racking. Fermentation completes in wooden barriques where wine matures on its own lees without decanting. Finally ageing for 4 years in 180 litre Slovenian oak barrels and 6 months in bottles laid on their side. No fining, no filtering, no sulphur or any other preservatives before bottling.
Drink now through to 2030. No need to decant before serving.
