Woodstock Cabernet Sauvignon 750mL
McLaren Vale regional Cabernet Sauvignon fruit characters are easily identified on both nose and palate. Lifted varietal notes of blackcurrants, sweet black plums and a touch of chocolate mint. Soft and fruit driven in the mouth with structured, elegant tannins that add a seamless richness to the palate. The finish is long with a savoury grip that makes its ideal with food. An approachable style for early appreciation yet can benefit from cool cellaring for up to 10 years.
Critics Rating: 2016 vintage - 88 points - James Halliday Wine Companion. Date tasted: 27th Feb 2019. Precariously on the edge of being OTT. There's a sweetness of fruit and oak running across the full-bodied palate met by blackberry essence, wood spice and smoke. Gritty tannins, plenty of grunt and definitely needs robust fare as a counterpoint. Reviewed by Jane Faulkner - Published 01 August 2020
