Cabernets Wine 2015 Review Australia

Review
A fantastic project here. These wines have a ‘classic feel’ but fall under the more avant garde sect of winemakers and winemaking. Great stuff. Heavily seasoned but the wine cops it well, clove spice, tobacco whiffs over cassis and green peppercorns, flavours similar and the whole thing so silky, fresh-feeling, shy of medium weight, wrapped in a light web of tannin. Very elegant, refined, mouth-watering and vibrant. Excellent wine for its ilk.

Review
Stewed berries with rosemary. I like this richer perfume. Slurpy in texture, ripe berries, more rosemary, maybe some white pepper, a little game meat and dusty tannin in the mix too. Feels interesting and delicious. A bit of maturity showing perhaps but cool place and ageing wine is the vibe. This is a wildly good thing to drink.

Cabernets Wine 2015 Review Australia

Review
It’s as good as I’ve seen a cabernet blend this year.

Pitch perfect everything. Bruised-sour dark berry and sweet cassis fruit characters, black olive and salted liquorice notes, sprigs of bay leaf amongst the faintest ‘Aussie bush’ detail, a sense of granite/slate-mineral character. Has that tension in the palate that sits between juiciness and the skin of a balloon of tannin ready to burst but holding tight, all in a succulent flow that forms almost dart-like then fans as it finishes each sip. Far out. You have a moment I reckon. Just such a beautiful wine to drink and flicking on all the fine wine switches as you pause with it. Mea culpa for not getting here earlier.
