Wine of the Day: ’10 Brolga Brook Cabernet Sauvignon
Leading- edge technology is not normally associated with grape production. However there has been a quiet revolution in Australian vineyards over the past 20 years as Australian grape growers have increasingly adopted soil moisture monitoring devices to manage yield and quality improvements in grapes. These range from the simple to the incredibly sophisticated whereby monitoring devices detect the uptake of moisture by a plant at 10cm intervals in the soil, with fractions of a millimeter uptake being recorded. This is a contributory factor to Australia’s reputation as a fine wine producer.
This fine Cabernet Sauvignon comes from vineyards using soil moisture monitoring technology, and the balance of fruit depth and tannin creates a wine of eminent drinkability. It’s structured style and herbal notes complement many Asian and Western foods, and should be enjoyed with good friends around a table.
