2012 “The Hill Block” Reserve Cabernet
Deep red, crimson hue.
Gorgeous, fragrant nose of blackcurrant, violets and a subtle/cedary French oak. Quite lifted and perfumed – absolutely typical with this wine.
Several layers of dark fruits, cedary oak and graphite/slate characters. Very fine tannins and balanced acidity provide length and structure to the medium weight palate.
Simply a lovely expression of Cabernet from our vineyard. The fragrance and elegance in no small part due to the Cabernet Franc component in this wine. Try this with rare roasted rack of Sultbush Lamb. Delicious now, but 10-15 years hidden away somewhere dark and cool will reward those with patience.
