Leeuwin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
A concentrated dark fruit spectrum with an abundance of ripe blackcurrants, cherries and a hint of cassis. Coffee bean, dark chocolate and black olives lie beneath. Subtle dustiness combines with a seductive violet lift, enhancing the varietal fragrance and increasing complexity. A dense and layered palate with incredible texture. The generosity of the palate is carefully laced with a fine and structural acid line. Dark cherries and currants weave through smokey and mocha notes, finishing with long tactile tannins.
Darenberg Coppermine Cabernet Sauvignon
A classic Cabernet in every sense. The nose, allowed time to open evolves from mushroom, olive and salami in to more typical purple fruits, blackcurrant and violets, backed by ripples of freshly torn mint, sage and oregano. A rich, but chiselled palate follows, framed by layers of long, chalky tannins. This sleek, seamless wine has an unmistakeable air of class. Enticing in youth with a promise of greater depth and elegance to reward careful, patient cellaring.
Jim Barry Benbournie Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is a deep crimson red in the glass. Intensely aromatic with a mix of dark vine fruits, dark chocolate, fresh garden herbs, cedar oak and a touch of earth. The palate is flooded with generous dark berry flavours with savoury notes of earth, clove and cedar. Very fine, mineralic tannin lends length and style to a wine of great presence and persistence.
St Hugo The Unspoken Promise Cabernet Sauvignon
The nose shows fresh dark berry fruit, complemented by notes of sweet toasted oak. A balance of ripe forest fruits and rich dark chocolate flow across the palate, supported by supple tannin and acid that will see this wine stand up beautifully as it ages. The influence of oak is elegant; integrated seamlessly to add layers of complexity on the palate. A superb wine perfectly blended, seamless, deep and complex with silky tannins and excellent cellaring potential.
Wynns Messenger Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Wynns is privileged to have some of Coonawarras best quality and oldest vineyards. Each year, the Winemakers select just one parcel of wine to bottle separately. In 2015 the Messenger vineyard, in the southern section of the terra rossa strip, showed to distinction. Mulberries and red cherries with overtones of classic Messenger Vineyard lavender on the nose. Juicy and elegant. Blueberry flavours with very fine tannins and integrated French oak. An excellent example of medium-bodied Cabernet with elegant framing tannin.
