More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Bright raspberry. blueberry notes on the nose, followed by full fruitiness on the palate with touches of currants, coffee and a delightful milk chocolate presence. A classic match with beef dishes.
|Another ground-breaking cross-continent blend of premium cabernet grapes grown in Mudgee NSW (66%) and Frankland WA (28%), fermented at cool to moderate temperatures to capture the varietal notes. Individual parcels were matured in a combination of one and two year old French oak barrels prior to final blending.|
This wine leads the new wave of Australian cabernets that highlight the bright ripe cherry, blackcurrant and leafy notes of the variety. Generous ‘forest fruits’ – ripe red berries to the fore, layered yet soft tannins and a lovely crisp, fresh finish that leaves you wanting for more.
