Marion Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon made using part appessimento (dried) grapes from Veneto? I know, it took me by surprise when he first showed me the wines back in 2012. But against all the norms it’s not only a beautiful wine it’s very, very popular. A soupcon of that appessimento style amongst the typicity you expect from Cabernet Sauvignon.
Composed 100% from Cabernet Sauvignon. Appessimento (dried) grapes make up 10 to 15% of the overall blend. The portion of this wine made from these dried grapes are strictly fermented and aged separately from the ‘normal’ fermented grapes, then blended in before aging. Fermented in stainless steel then transferred into barrel for 36 months or so. Only 10% now sees small barrel (500ltr) with the rest in 3000ltr, all Slovenian oak
