Small Batch Wines  |  2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Tony Love, The Advertiser, Sept 2007

25% of the grapes for this wine have been left to dry out on the vine, thereby concentrating the flavour- Amarone style. Totally opaque black purple colour with black purple hue. Flavours of mocha, dark chocolate and coffee emerge over a background of spice and blackcurrant. The palate is very concentrated, with flavours of ripe blackcurrant and spice, laced with mocha and ripe plum. Fine, slightly chalky tannins. Very long aftertaste of liquorice, blackcurrant and prune.
