Climbing, Cabernet Sauvignon, Orange 2014

black currant, black berry, brambly stalks, oak shavings with hints of vanilla pod and a savoury, cooling note.  Dark, savoury blackcurrant, not a lifted  cordial. restrained, almost muted fruit. Feels cool in the mouth with a touch of mint. Fine gauze like tannins, acid is medium. A good darker alternative and not relying on oak/ripeness.

RRP: $24

Alc: 13%
