Gartelmann Jonathan Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Grown at Rylstone, above Mudgee at 630 metres. Could be Australia’s highest cabernet vineyard?

Gartelmann, Jonathan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mudgee, 2013

2012 label shown

Blackcurrant, pencil shavings, fresh paint with a stony minerally line. Some sharp acidity brightens things and slices edges off dark yeasty/savoury flavours. Drying, sour tannins fade out the slightly warm blackcurrant finish. Tastes like proper cabernet but no need to cellar any further.

RRP: $35
Alc: 14.7%
Rating: 16.5/20
