2015 Singlefile 'The Philip Adrian' Cabernet Sauvignon
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
The Philip Adrian is Singlefile’s flagship red wine where every measure is taken to ensure only the best fruit and barrels are selected. This wine will only be made in exceptional vintages.
The wine is 100% cabernet sauvignon (Houghton clones), the fruit picked and sorted in April 2015. It was cold soaked in a small fermenter for two weeks with minimum pump overs before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration lasting for four weeks. Sixty-five percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques for eighteen months. The balance went to one-year-old (25%) and two-year-old (10%) Bordeaux barriques (for the same period). The wine will be bottle aged for a further twelve months before release.
