Cassegrain Wines produces a select range of Reserve wines using the best parcels of grapes from that vintage. Reserve wines are aged in barrel and also in bottle for a period before release. At the time of release they are not yet at their maturation peak and as such will reward cellaring.
Wines released under the Reserve label reflect a stringent selection criteria demanded by winemakers John and Alex Cassegrain. When making Reserve wines a number of fermentation and maturation techniques are used to add complexity to the wines varietal characters.
While both the Reserve Shiraz and Fromenteau (Reserve Chardonnay) are single variety wines, it is not uncommon for the grapes to be from varying regions as we find blending fruit from different “terrior” is a great tool for building complexities into the wine.
