YEATES Wines - Reserve Shiraz Cabernet 2016

The Gatekeeper - 2016 Reserve Shiraz Cabernet

Deep and intense red brick hues, lead to aromas of red berry fruits, plum and spice
notes. The palate is rich and medium to full bodied with forest fruits, some lovely spice
elements, and finishes with a fine balance of softness and strength. The grapes were
hand-picked, cold macerated for five days and wild yeast fermented to allow the true
qualities of the vineyard to be expressed in the wine. During maturation 5% Cabernet
Sauvignon was added for greater complexity – a style made famous by the “Mountain
Blue” wines of yesteryear. This wine was aged for 15 months in a blend of French and
American oak hogsheads, crafting a wine with great structure, complexity and length of
flavour which will develop into a Mudgee classic” - Jacob Stein, Winemaker
