Sourced from Sandalford’s 40 year old, dry grown vineyard in Margaret River. 30% new French oak for 13 months.
Sandalford, Estate Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, 2016
Deep garnet, almost opaque in the glass. Plenty of dry kitchen spices over varietal blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. Some milky coffee, oak influences, laced with chocolate and plum. A silky palate to start that glides effortlessly before a constricting to a tight finish of full tannins. The alcohol gives a slight spike through the tail of black fruits. Still very primary, some legs, some arms…a little patience shall reward.
