Red Knot by Shingleback, Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, 2017

Proper cabernet aromas (not just McLaren Vale) with blackcurrant, bay leaf, dusty chocolate, cigar box, olive and tomato leaf. Textured, balanced with pure blackcurrant fruit offset with savoury bay and olive. Hints of cedary oak and fine, little rumbly tannins. Mid palate presence driving through to a long tail. Cracking value.

RRP: $15
Alc: 14%
Rating: 18/20
