Auld Family Wines Wilberforce Cabernet Shiraz 2015

Sam and Jock Auld are the 6th generation of a family who have been intertwined in the Australian wine fabric since the mid 1800’s. Wilberforce was the reliable horse that rode with their forebear, William Patrick for 37 years.

Mocha and earthy, plum, choc, menthol and leaf, some black olive and old leather. The blend does it’s job with the plum and blackberry fruit supported well with leafy tobacco Cabernet hints and a sweet vanilla tinge. There’s some meaty development just starting to show while the tannin structure is still holding firm and slightly coarse.

RRP: $35
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 17.5/20
