Handpicked Collection Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
While Coonwarra is not the only region in Australia that has great Cabernet on offer, it is often one of Australia’s regions that is best known internationally. As it should be too, as the regional style is softly spoken fruit melded with powdery tannins.
A complex, yet focused, wine where the classic blackcurrant, cassis fruit is topped off with dried herbs, sage and mint, and nutmeg. The power of this wine is more on the elegant side while still plush and fleshy. Enjoy with an excellent steak – either dressed up or dressed down.
Quickie review « Finely structured fruit, wrapped in soft powdery tannins, that delivers a twist of savouriness on the finish.»
