2020 Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon *

Cabernet Sauvignon grows in ideal conditions on the Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard thanks to the combined influence of elevation, aspect, prevailing winds, weather and ancient soils. The ability to consistently retain expressive and fragrant aromas and obtain deep tannin ripeness with concentrated fresh flavours makes Trueman one of the estate’s most highly regarded wines. Violet, blueberry, purple olive and cedar aromas lead to rich blueberry, blackberry and plum flavours. Tannins are long and layered, delivering exceptional depth of flavour and a long, seamless impression that ages very well.



The growing season was affected by a very hot spring, leading to the lowest yields on our record. When the grapes started their ripening process in January, the weather miraculously cooled to a very mild ripening season. This resulted in wonderful concentration of flavour, retention of natural acidity and brightness of fruit, delivering wines with beautiful finesse and balanced tannins. The 2020 Trueman expresses cassis, rose hips, mint and Asian spice on the nose with dark cherry, cedar, slight toast, and silky tannins on the palate.
