A range of bold rich reds, aged in charred No.3 oak barrels. Charred barrels impart distinct characteristics and a deep complexity to the wine. The degree of barrel charring increases on a scale from No.1 to No.4 – the highly charred No.3 barrel enhances the roasted coffee and chocolate characters, revealing a subtle toasty flavor and smooth finish.
The 2018 inaugural release of Char No.3 Cabernet Sauvignon is a fine expression of archetypal McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon, displaying fantastic varietal characters of cassis, chocolate and mocha. The fine tannins and oak spice provide complexity and length of palate with a smooth finish.
