2012 Vintage

Region: McLaren Vale, Australia

Grape Variety: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Petit Verdot 

Winemaker: Rolf Binder

This wine is a fulsome style of cabernet sauvignon (with a cheeky 9% of Petit Verdot) that shows blackcurrant, tobacco leaves, violets and plums on the nose, with just a hint of savouriness. On the palate the wine kicks in with ripe dark fruit flavours, a mild grip to the tannins, and a balanced, savoury-edged finish.
Contemporary winemaking techniques are used with temperature controlled fermentation.
The wine is tank pressed and spends 6 days on the skins, before being transferred to barrel for 14 months of Old Oak Maturation

It's a tad more intriguing than the usual fare, and would be great with some slow-braised oxtail.
