Pretty, inviting lifted varietal notes of blackcurrant, cassis and subtle menthol, as the wine opens up there are more savoury notes of dried herb, bay leaf and dark brambles. There is a hint of amarone-esque fruit concentration, a nod to the ripeness of some of our later harvested parcels. Well structured tannins persist on the finish complemented by flavours of an almost tarry, sour black cherry and Christmas cake. This is a classic example of high altitude, Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with the presence of 5% Merlot noticable in the voluptuous mid palate.
Enjoy with a hearty stew.
