- SA - Langhorne Creek
- South Australia
Good colour; less new oak here compared to the top of the range '12 Cabernet, which makes this a better wine at the moment; it has plenty of cassis, black olive and bramble fruit, the tannins (and oak) well balanced. Rating 94 - Drink by 2027 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
Bright crimson and magenta in colour.
This Cabernet Sauvignon has classic regional Langhorne Creek aromas of blackcurrants with a herbal Cabernet lift.
Touches of mocha, mint leaf and spice lead to mouth filling flavours of blackcurrant and cassis fruits and chocolate. Firm tannins provide a long finish best enjoyed over the next five to ten years.
