Di Giorgio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra, 2016

A full cupboard of Cabernet aromas: Blackberry, blackcurrant, herby bay leaf and dark minty feel while the oak plays its part with cedar and chocolate. Modern styling, medium to full bodied. Bright black fruit front and centre with violets and chocolate over a svelte texture thanks to a low rumbling of tannin, finishing with toasty oak char. Will age nicely.

RRP: $29
Alc: 13.8%
Rating: 17/20
