Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon
Winery Tasting Note
Medium intensity, garnet
Red berry fruit with nuances of mulberry, cherry and classic Coonawarra mint. There are obvious vanilla and cherry oak characters.
Key Cabernet characteristics of red berries, currant and green peppers. Elegant with a fine tannin structure.
Vitulus is Latin for Bull Calf, another subtle reminder of the Reschke's family cattle grazing heritage, that started in 1906.
Vitulus provides an entry level to the Reschke premium range of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. The Vitulus fruit is sourced from our younger, lower yielding vines, which have been earmarked to produce some of Reschke's finest. The wine is matured for 24 months, in 2-3 year old French oak. The result is a wine displaying balance and finesse with a softness marking for an approachable early drinking style.
