Country: Australia, Margaret River
Tasting Notes: The colour is a very youthful brick red and the condition is bright.
This wine shows the style of the 2015 vintage and quite likely the impact of the small crop. In such years, Cabernet Sauvignon in particular, has a complex but somewhat subdued nose, where the wine hints of the underlying power and complexity but takes years to reveal its true colours. So here we see smouldering red currant, black currant and mulberry, with a floral, violet lift, sitting over cedar and tar. On the palate there is concentration and length – dark fruits combining with firm tannin and leather and tarry notes.
Varietal: Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Cabernet Franc
