Country: Australia, Great Western, Victoria
Tasting Notes: Dark inky garnet with deep purple hue. Rich and broody berry aromas dominate including blackberry and plum. A background of tobacco leaf and nutty oak add complexity. Fine but intense with a core of vibrant dark fruit. The powdery tannins point the way through to a long finish.
This youthful wine is a great expression of the variety in Great Western. It is possible to enjoy this wine now with food, but it will soften and gain complexity over the next 5- 20 years.
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Pairing: The perfect accompaniment to a hearty Beef Casserole
