Asoke is the first and only Thai Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Thailand and the best our vindyard has to offer. The Cabernet for this wine is from our French and Australian clone blocks. The grapes were left to ripen to thier maximum and later hand-harvested in the cool morning of March at 23°Brix, hand sorted and traditionally-fermented in open tanks. The Syrah selected for this blend was late-picked from our best Syrah block on a slope with red clay and good drainage.
2015 Asoke Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah was aged for eighteen months in French and Amerian oak barrels for robustness and balance. With Syrah in the blend to fill the middle palate,it is full-bodied yet fruit-driven wine with a well-balanced oak. This wine shows layers of plum, blackcurrant, capsicum and dry spices. Complex and dry mouth feel of earth, tobacco and velvety tannins are held together by tight acidity that helps this wine to age beautifully. The well-structured tannis make this wine pleasurable drinking on its own or with food. 2015 Asoke Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah is crafted to be enjoyed with a few years of cellaring and will improve with age.
