Red Knot by Shingleback, Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, 2018

Deep garnet from core to rim. Blackcurrant, blackberry, grated dark chocolate, herbaceous bay, olive and a fair whack of cigar tobacco. Medium bodied with a mesh of fine, mod-Oz tannin structure and an inherent juiciness not unlike citrus. The dark fruit profile runs consistently from start to finish and the wine leaves a savoury tail. Very good value.

RRP: $15
Alc: 14.1%
Rating: 17.75/20
