Red Schooner 'Transit 1' Red Blend Australia 750 ml
Legendary for the production of memorable red wines, South Australia was our inspiration for transit. We began with finding high-caliber grapes - always the key to each of our wines. Next came transit over ocean waters, a practice now both common and efficient for fruits and vegetables. The chilled grapes arrived at Caymus, as if just harvested. We use time-honored winemaking techniques to extract deep color and rich tannins during fermentation, while staying attuned to place of origin. One can smell a slight mint character, likely a derivative of native trees. A ripe style, along with the nuance of dried fruit, reflects Australia's warm, dry conditions. Aging was in French oak barrels, with bottling in April 2018. Instead of a vintage date, each bottle will be known by its transit - this first bottling is: Red Schooner - Transit 1. Red wine of the world.
