Dry grown? Tick. Hand picked? Tick. Great vineyard? Tick. Aged Cabernet? Tick. Many boxes being ticked.
Mitchell Sevenhill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley 2009
Rustic, mineral edged, pencil, brambles, blackberry and waft of mint. Structured, yet palate, with ripe blackberry, black tea notes, chocolate oak with elegant tannins. This carries confidently across palate, made by a winemaker who knows to let the fruit speak for itself. Absolutely in peak form and a bargain.
