Country: Australia, McLaren Vale
Tasting Notes: A plethora of Cabernet characters seemingly bursting from the glass, with typical notes of blackcurrant, violets and cedar enhanced by a twist of mint and herb from the cooler vintage.
The palate is streamlined and focused. No blousiness here, just a beautiful line of fruit, some sweetness, a hint of chocolate and raspberry perhaps with a nutty savoury edge. Tannins are chalky and long but the lasting impression we get is one of fruit.
Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
