The Pugilist Cabernet Sauvignon

The Pugilist Cabernet Sauvignon

One Chain Vineyards, like Thistledown is overseen by Peter Leske, Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW. Comprising two ranges, Cricket Series and Character Series, One Chain works with growers to source fruit from some of the most established regions of South Australia. Our Character Series has a range of beautifully produced and packaged wines, benefitting from the same ultra premium quality fruit sourced for Thistledown. Each wine has great varietal definition coupled with our signature vibrancy and freshness. These are wines that are immediately pleasing, yet authentic expression of the variety and place. Our Cricket Series wines are inspired by a love for the Australian national sport. Indeed, the name One Chain is the imperial measurement for 22 yards, or the length of a cricket pitch. However, you really dont need to be a connoisseur of the game to be bowled over by the restrained, elegant style of the Chardonnay and the bright red fruit and subtle oak of the Shiraz Cabernet.

Vineyards
The Pugilist is sourced from 2 vineyard sites in Langhorne Creek, both of which are above the flood plain. Soils are of sandy loam with some iron rich red soils. Both vineyards are trellised and spur pruned to produce low yields which ensure balance and flavour.

Vinification
Precise varietal expression and balance are what we seek to achieve and so picking time is of utmost importance. We pick just as flavours are approaching their peak rather than let them get over-ripe. We retain whole berries in the ferment for vibrancy and we press relatively early to avoid astringent tannins.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of vibrant, cassis and mulbery lead through to a beautifully poised, elegant palate of bright bramble laden fruit coupled with hints of leather and smoke. Supple, textbook Cabernet with a moreish finish.
