La Amante’, or The Mistress, is Homage Vineyard’s finest expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. Only made in 2012, and using only fruit from the best block on Homage Vineyard. The wine was fermented in open top, new French Oak barrels and aged for 2½ years in French Oak. Only 120 Cases were produced.
The wine has cedar, eucalyptus and plum aromas. It has a rich mouthfeel with dense red fruit flavors including blackcurrant, pomegranate and Bing cherries. It is an expressive wine with great elegance and balance incorporating refined oak, supple tannins and finessed acidity. The opulent finish builds and lasts for minutes.
The Mistress – for special occasions only!
