MILES FROM NOWHERE BEST BLOCK CAB SAU 20
Miles From Nowhere is the phoenix that rose out of the ashes of Evans & Tate wines. The founders, Frank and Heather Tate, created Miles from Nowhere in 2007 in the Margaret River. In their winemaking, they passionately crafted wine to bring some of the “terroir”, the relaxed time and space, and the “palate” of the region into the wine glass. The focus is to produce serious wine in a serious package, yet retain the essential ingredients of excitement, fun and enjoyment.
Best Block Cab Sauv were sourced from low yielding sites, small batch. Specific rows allocated to the blend in the vineyard by taste. Fruit received an extensive cold soak prior to the onset of primary fermentation. Partially because it was harvested on a very cool autumn morning. A low rate of yeast was initially added to this tank and when the must had gradually warmed to 20°C the balance of yeast was added. Then inoculated immediately and was fermented at higher temperatures up to 30°C to aid extraction. Both parcels were left on skins for 7-14+ days post fermentation prior to pressing off. Post fermentation the wine was matured in French barriques for 14-16 months. After maturation individual barrels were selected by the winemaking team for the blend.
