James Halliday – Matured for 15 months in Bordeaux oak. The epitome of top quality McLaren Vale cabernet in it inimitable style, generous yet firmly structured, cassic, choc-mint, ripe tannins and integrated oak of high quality. - 95 points, James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017
Huon Hooke – Deep red/purple colour and a bright, fresh, primary fruit aroma of blueberry, raspberry, cassis and violets. Oak is very much in the background and it's very varietal. Medium to full-bodied, not a whopper and not very tannic. Oak is subtle as is the grip, and the fruit is very much in the spotlight. It's a more elegant iteration of this wine and remarkably approachable for its age. A beautiful wine. Drink 2016 - 2034. - 96 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review
About This Wine
The Trueman has a nose of blackberries and chocolate with notes of rose petal and sage. A balanced palate with black plum notes and a fresh acidity is interlaced with velvety tannins.
The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is sourced from Hickinbotham’s 200 Block, 300 Block and 100 Block. Clusters are hand-picked, destemmed and gently crushed to open-top fermenters. Berries are cold-soaked and pumped over daily with a minimum of 18 days on skins. Post-fermentation, the must is basket pressed with light pressings added to free-run and hard pressings kept separate. Aged 15 months in fine-grain Bordeaux coopered barrels of which 75% are new.
