Palate Profile

The 2019 Enterprise Cabernet has a fragrant nose of red fruit, olive leaf and spice.  This is a classic Enterprise Cabernet in its typical medium bodied style that will continue to develop.  Knappstein’s single vineyard wines explore the full potential and individual nuances of our unique sites, producing wines with finesse and beauty.

The Enterprise Vineyard was planted in 1969 and is located at the northern end of the Clare Valley. The 52 year old vines grow on red loam soils and produce distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon renowned for its depth of flavour, elegance and fine-grained tannins. The Enterprise Cabernet Sauvignon has been a single vineyard since 1974.

Critic Awards

An intense crimson hued wine that is very youthful with many heard ahead of it yet. It exhibits great depth, concentration and vibrancy of varietal fruit richness.

Well. This is a beauty. So much fruit, tannin and oak but in such overall balance. Blackcurrant and toast, peppermint cream and dried herbs, chocolate. Swoosh. It’s big, it’s creamy and it’s tannic but it has energy. Bowled me over a bit, this one. Belter of a Clare Valley cabernet.

Combining power and sophistication, the wine is filled with cassis, dark plum and spicy oak flavours with nuances of dried herb and floral. The wonderfully concentrated palate exhibits terrific fruit intensity backed by fine texture and chalky tannins, finishing structured and superbly long.

Colour is deep, dark, youthful and vibrant. Complex and layered aromas of blackberry, mulberry, cedar, graphite, dried herbs and eucalyptus. A full-throttle palate, all those dark and brooding black fruits carry over, the tannin is assertive and structured, and shapes the lushness of the fruit very nicely. A cabernet that has power, precision and poise.

Cassis, salted licorice, cigar box, dark chocolate and blood plums. The nose and the palate are prefectly aligned in this classical, savoury and structural cabernet.
