A slight change to the name of the wine, with the previous spelling of “Hannah’s” now stripped of its palindrome status and shortened to “Hanna’s.” Let’s hope Glenelg and Tumut never suffer the same fate!
West Cape Howe, “Hanna’s Hill”, Cabernet, Malbec, Frankland River, 2017
Deep garnet from the core to the rim in the glass. Wet cassis, pencil shavings, beet/choc cake, leafy hunter’s herbs that touches to black olive and sweeter blackcurrant jelly crystals. Medium-full bodied. Offer reams of upfront sweet black fruit before drawing tight into waxy coating tannins and a wink of savoury herbs and black olive. A pleasant wine without attempting great heights, a little time in bottle won’t hurt to develop.
