Producer Tasting Notes
Bright plum red. Fragrant, lively. Soars. Alluring – an innocent sniff certainly draws you immediately back to the glass, soon to tempt that hurried first ingestion. An array of glacéed fruits – red-infused jube and pastille notes. Aromas remind of flambé crêpe suzette with the faintest hint of (Grand Marnier) orange. A suggestion of oak – linked to scents of dry tea leaf (Earl Grey). Shouts Coonawarra! An immediate proclamation at first sip. Red fruits swamp the palate –raspberry, cranberry, redcurrant, rhubarb and a little cassis. No mid-palate deficit – this cabernet’s mouth-watering acidity and succulence fill all gaps. Grainy, highly defined / high-resolution tannins – right across the palate, in tandem with supportive oak. A balanced density and volume. Expansive.
