2016 Samuel Nitschke Cabernets


Samuel Nitschke is our favourite classic Cabernet blend, 85% Cab Sauv and 15% Cab Franc is Wyndham’s preference for complimentary balance, each variety enhancing the other. Four years barrel maturation lends body and structure, while our organic growing methods and hand harvest yield complexity and intensity.

No doubt 2016 vintages will become highly prized cellar gems in years to come. The Barossa Valley experienced signature low rainfall and intense summer heat. This contributed to our Cabernet Franc’s highly perfumed and sweet cigar vibrancy, as an addition to Cabernet Sauvignon it balances into a bold, voluptuous beauty.

The 2016 vintage floods the senses with red fruits, raspberry and aniseed dominate the nose. The palate presents savoury, herbaceous, earthy, and finishes jammy, like blackberry, almond and vanilla. A full bodied wine with a lingering, clean finish.
