Cabernet Sauvignon 2020


Tasting Notes

Deep red colour. The bouquet is lifted with fragrant aromas of blackberry, soft leather, floral and hints of oak and spice.

The palate is packed with flavour; dark cherry and plum with hints of herbs and long fine, spicy tannins. An elegant smooth wine drinking well now. Will reward even more with age.

This wine is versatile and made to enjoyed with a table full of flavoursome dishes and good company.

What the reviewers are saying

This is a brilliant crimson edged with brick. Cedary wine of stony roll-in-the-mouth tannins, like ball bearings across the gums massaging currant, cedar and tobacco leaf flavours. Elegance is written all over this. Drinking well now, but will continue to impress. And the price! Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion
