Wente Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
ince 1883, five generations of our family have handcrafted fine wines that express the very best of our vineyards and winemaking expertise. Our Estate Grown Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon is named for our vineyards located along the southern hills of the Livermore Valley. The Wente family farms approximately 400 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards using the two clones originating from California wine pioneer Charles Wetmore’s Bordeaux cuttings in the 19th century. With Livermore Valley’s unique East-West orientation, well-drained rocky soils, and unique mesoclimates, the Southern Hills vineyards are located in the most desirable settings with exposures ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon of distinct character, depth and intensity.
The various components were fermented separately in upright stainless steel tanks where it was gently pumped over twice daily, increasing the extraction of aromas and textures.
14 months in American, French, Eastern European neutral oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. Stainless steel helps to add fruit vibrancy to our Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon.
